42. What is your cultural background and how has that influenced how you dress?

White home counties working class, independent school then university, so now middle class
Hasn't influenced it at all, as far as I know

White British.
I have no style.

I'm African, a descendant of slaves, sharecroppers, and self-emancipated people who were forcibly displaced to America. It influences me a lot. I like to wear things that celebrate my culture and remind me who I am. I'm mindful of how I look because it affects how people view and treat me as a Black woman.

White..Irish..Bohemian..lower to middle class..Great childhood..great family and friends..worked hard since 16..not sure of influence

I'm more than sure it's influenced me in numerous ways, but I really cannot pinpoint exactly how.

i like jewish and christian clothes.

Eastern european background, low income, trift shopping, reused clothes, self sawn clothes. It influenced me not trusting luxury, not aiming for expensive brands.

I grow up and live in Hungary which was a communist (east block) country.Fashion and fashion trends were not the most important things in the 60-s 70-s. It was much more important to be "cultured" which ment behaviour and reading to know something about art. I think these are my influencer still now.

I'm Latina and white, and I guess it plays into my natural body shape and accommodating my curves before I look at the style. If it doesn't look right, I won't wear it.

waspy American - and Australian. Probably years in school uniform have made me more amenable to the concept of a limited clothing palette.

vaguely slavic-american. i admire the trashy/classy line eastern europeans carefully balance on, but i don't know if it influenced me necessarily. i try to embody the spirit of a matching adidas tracksuit.

European background, mum brought up by grand-parents. So it was about not following fashion trends, quality over quantity, investing in classic quality pieces. No one would wear a tracksuit on the street, even these days!

I'm white American with a Jewish dad and Christian mom raised non-religiously. This has no influence on how I dress.

I am English/Irish/Scottish/Welsh And this becomes quite apparent when the weather starts to get chilly, because my wardrobe will be drawn entirely from my stockpile of thigh-length Irish fisherman knit sweaters.

My mum was from France and moved to England, where i live. My dad was from Lincoln.

I am Indigenous x Lithuanian. I don't wear any traditional Indigenous or Lithuanian clothing but I am proud of my heritage.

French, I dress very French

It influenced women to always follow and keep the culture style

I was raised by fundamentalist Christians with very strict rules about modest, feminine fashion. I don't think I wore pants in public before age 12.

I used style to rebel at 16. I had a wardrobe in the trunk of my first car, a Dodge Intrepid. I'd put on the shortest skirts and knee-high leather boots as soon as I was out of my parent's eyesight.

To this day, I loathe any clothing that feels like something my Mother would approve of. I'll never wear a midiskirt, a peter pan color, or pastel florals.
