As a consequence of the integration of the Oriental fashion in the Western fashion it can be difficult to distinguish it. With a method of semiotically analyzed photographs this thesis has studied the turban as a symbol of the Oriental fashion. From the analysis, it has been proven that the turban has undergone a transformation from dress and masquerade to fashion. A pattern which has been linked to a process of deorientalizing. The garment has in the thesis been used as an object for studying the interaction between East and West in fashion. Furthermore, the thesis has studied the significance of the contextual meaning within fashion as well as the globalization of the fashion system. (Less)
