Heritage; something that is handed down from the past as a tradition.

Tradition; beliefs or behaviors passed down within a society with special importance and origins from the past.

A major part of tradition is clothing (fashion). Every society around the world has heritage/ traditional clothing. These are fabrics, articles of clothing attached to their cultul identity.

In the last couple of years beginning in Fall/Winter 2016, British fabrics like tweed, herringbone and Scottish traditional tartans were all over the runway.

The obsession with these fabrics haven’t simmered down. Plaid and Tartans are a major trend for Spring/Summer 2018. YOU can read a trend report here.

I upcyled a thrifted tartan skirt into a two piece bandeau top and skirt.
