This is a project for Fashion Merchandising or Fashion Design Classes. It includes project scenario, instructions, detailed rubric, and country selection list. For a literacy component, a written paper requirement could easily be added to the project.
Project Scenario (from project):
Culture is a society’s set of social norms or values. In many instances, fashion is molded by one’s culture. Historical customs, religion, entertainment, social classes, standard of living, politics, current events, weather, and societal modesty vary greatly from country to country across the world. Therefore, what is fashionable in one county may not be acceptable in another.
For this project, you will analyze the fashions of your chosen country based on its cultural influences. You will need to research the country’s past, present, and possible future trends that affect fashion to make the connection. From your research, you will need to develop a well-designed, colorful PowerPoint presentation to share your findings with the class.
