The Influence of Non-mainstream Culture on the Aesthetic Judgment of Fashion Trends
Semiotics of Fashion is the study of fashion and how humans signify specific social and cultural positions through dress. Ferdinand de Saussure defined semiotics as "the science of the life of signs in society". Semiotics is the study of signs and just as we can interpret signs and construct meaning from text we can also construct meaning from visual images such as fashion. It holds a symbolic and communicative role having the capacity to express one's unique style, identity, profession, social status, and gender or group affiliation. Clothing is a non-verbal sign that can be interpreted differently depending on the context, situation or culture. It's in this way that the semiotics of fashion can be linked to social semiotics.
Fashion, Culture, and Identity
By looking back into the history of fashion, if any fashion element went even one step beyond the traditional standards, it would be considered as betrayal. All betrayals would be undoubtedly resisted by mainstream culture aristocracy culture. After the recent half century, postmodern fashion designers have been evoking people to question and debate about the traditional aesthetic standards of fashion. It is the moment of fierce shocks between mainstream and non-mainstream culture, and traditional and modern aesthetics. The inspiring spark broke through all fetters and would bring about the aesthetic judgment of non-mainstream culture into the saintly palace of high fashion. The consciousness of the non-mainstream culture of postmodernism will continue to create newer items and turn fashion culture into a new era.

How does the way we dress communicate messages about our identity? Is the desire to be "in fashion" universal, or is it unique to Western culture? How do fashions change? These are just a few of the intriguing questions Fred Davis sets out to answer in this provocative look at what we do with our clothes and what they can do to us. Much of what we assume to be individual preference, Davis shows, really reflects deeper social and cultural forces. Ours is an ambivalent social world, characterized by tensions over gender roles, social status, and the expression of sexuality. Predicting what people will wear becomes a risky gamble when the link between private self and public persona can be so unstable.
