Every society with certain cultural values established their visual identity and reflected it in the objects they use daily. Nowadays, these patterns are considered to play a vital role in the cultural exchange of societies within the presentation of the local patterns on clothing fashion through designers and brands.
Hybrid styles have emerged with the said patterns in combination of both patterns belonging to other cultures and the silhouettes belonging to city culture.
It has been observed that the hybrid styles which are composed of the mixture of factors belong to these different cultures that prevalent through fashion system, blur the intercultural boundaries eliminating the sense of belonging.
Mostly used local patterns of various cultures selected by prominently featured and the patterns have been selected from those who have general characteristics of cultures fed by geography, beliefs and traditions; some original sources and reflections of designers who stand out in contemporary fashion were compared. Printed publications such as books and style magazines (especially Vogue magazine, since it has a wide design archive), newspapers, museums and contemporary designs on the internet were used to obtain research findings.
In general, it has been seen that in the local patterns used in today's fashion system, original cultural codes are interpreted in contemporary styles. Within this context, this study can be seen as a study aiming at drawing attention to the aspect that local visual elements reflected in fashion by designers affect the social belonging sense by creating a multi-cultural plane and, on the other hand, as a study on the reasons of the misidentification of the clothing culture in modern societies.
