The subject of fashion has attracted voluminous scholarship from diverse disciplines throughout the years, and for obvious reasons. The broader sense of fashion would be the shape and form of anything or the act that creates it, or the popular expression of aesthetics of a certain time and context. Whilst ‘fashion’ inherits the rich connotations as discussed above, it has become inseparable from the elements that made it a modernized and globalized entity in the first place – industrial, technological and capitalistic advancements that have helped pushed the evolution of ‘fashion’ as well as the accompanying idea of ‘luxury’. The globalization of fashion, which has had a long history, has also been closely associated with the export of Westernized notions of modernity. The preoccupation of ‘whiteness’ as a fashion aesthetic, as well as its entanglement with racial aesthetic, is perhaps a deeply complicated political-economic issue, intertwined with colonial history and the modernization.
