Tradition, according to The Word Power Dictionary, is a custom, or belief handed down from the past, especially by practice. Clothing, Word Power defines as articles of dress or apparel. The marriage of tradition to clothing results in cultural and historical encapsulation in dress. Clothing, dress, garments, apparel so many words for the coverings we wrap around our bodies. What is clothing, that indispensible article of human life? According to the World Book Encyclopedia, Vol. 4, clothing includes garments, accessories and ornaments, and evolved around 100,000 years ago.
