This needs to be made clear. By what criteria is the term "historical" being used here? My first reaction upon seeing it is that it is to list items that are no longer current, that is ones that someone would only wear if they were dressing in period garb or costume as part of a historical recreation for theatre, educational purposes or the like. As such, then greater care must be taken to ensure that the items here truly fit that criteria, as some items that were listed here, though less common, are not historical at all.oknazevad (talk) 22:23, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

I am open to a more clear criteria, but I am not sure what wording would be. To me the criteria is clothing that is worn much less then it was worn in the past. tahc chat 01:06, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Globalization of fashion[edit]

The section on modern fashion has now been divided to reflect the beginnings of globalization in the late 90s. As mentioned in 1990s in fashion, this may be due to the increased availability of the internet and satellite TV outside of America, plus Bill Clinton's reduction of import tariffs under Nafta.

These articles are not named "Globalized fashion" and do not seem to relate to all of Globalized fashion (whatever that is)-- they are merely wider than "Western fashion". tahc chat 17:34, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
