For a modern woman who is Catholic, clothes can be found in some of the most upscale designer stores. Let’s start with the fact that it is not unusual to find interesting interpretations. The shape of the cross is often manipulated or made entirely of wonderful material. The newest trend is the sideways cross, which has stirred up some level of controversy by those who are traditionalists.

What this is creating is a new generation of fashion conscious women who wear Catholic religious clothing in concert with some other pieces to give a very personal and unique touch to their overall appearance. Where a variety of personalized charms on bracelets used to be the main platform for storytelling, now there is a holistic approach to portraying the personality of a woman.

This is where the problem lies in most young adult Catholics. It's not that we don't know the beauty of each vocation but we've been conditioned to believe that before we do anything, we must discern. This isn't a false idea, but we've taken it to a point where we're discerning about discerning. It is plaguing our generation and preventing us from truly following God's will for our lives. We're so worried about not following God's will, that we have to think about deciding, to think about deciding to do something.

Young Catholic adults are missing the point about discerning (I know because I am one!). In this particular case, they're discerning about applying to NET when the real discernment happens with ACTUALLY applying to NET. As an applicant you don't even know if NET is actually going to accept you or not, so how can you properly discern a path when you haven't even taken the first step? It's the same of discerning Priesthood or Religious Life: the actual discernment happens once you're in the seminary (or convent). It's no surprise that there is a decline of vocation to the Priesthood in Canada, and we have an increase of priests from overseas (God bless them for saying yes to His will!) leading our congregations.

Islamic dress has for centuries been used to symbolize purity, mark status or formal roles, distinguish believer from nonbeliever and identify gender. Traditionally Muslims were admonished to dress modestly in garments that do not reveal the body silhouette and extremities. Head coverings were also expected. However, dress forms vary in different periods and regions, as does interpretation of and adherence to Muslim dress codes. 

The most prominent forms of Near Eastern dress can be classified as Arab or Turkic/Iranian in form, with degrees of blending between the two modes occurring where interaction between these  cultures has been greatest.

Our simple and modern products make Buddhists feel comfortable to sit in for the meditation sessions. This includes t-shirts, halter tops, dress shirts (regular shirts with buttons and collars), jeans, flannel shirts, polo shirts, and sweat suits.
Fashion, for many is considered an art and for some Buddhists, art is seen as another attachment. While it is clear that a fully enlightened arahant may have little use and no attachment to mundane things like art, for other Buddhists and those interested in Buddhism, art can be a wholesome action and interest. The Buddha saw its value because he said monks and nuns could beautify their monasteries by painting them different colours and decorating them with various geometrical and floral designs. As Buddhism spread in the centuries after the Buddha's passing his teachings gave an impetus to all the arts - painting, sculpture, poetry, drama and to a lesser degree music.
Fashion can not only be an acceptable interest in the arts, but also a skillful means for acquiring more interest in Buddhism.
Lay people wear what they like and Buddhists who wear modern clothing and especially those who wear fashionable clothes in artistic ways, demonstrate that Buddhists adapt to their local cultures and are otherwise no different than most other people in the dominant society.
As styles change we can expect many Buddhists to continue to follow the fashions of their cultures while still practicing the Buddha-Dhamma. For those that follow the fashion trends. And then there maybe the chance for generosity as those who change some of their wardrobe can give it to the less fortunate.
Shown on this page above and below are the many examples of lay Buddhists, including celebrities who wear the collar up style. It is not exactly clear why the collar up style is particularly popular among Buddhists, but it may be from the Mandarin  stand-up collar style mixed with modern clothing of dress shirts and polo shirts for an East-West fashionable look.

Religion Apparel

Buddhist costumes

Buddhism in our country divided into two sects: Mahayana and Theravada.

- The monks North tones (in the northern temple) wearing coarse brown fabric (dyed with faux). Later on fine fabrics used, finer and can be dyed with dyes. Around the house, wearing a short brown blouse, brown pants, men and women (male professor recent bargaining brown shirt). On the street or when the temple, wear long relativity, does not stretch the chest, neck standing, soft, tight button-neck, button brown braided cloth. At the ceremony wearing monks robes flap low rank brown, large hands, neck brace cross is about 5 cm wide. The high-level monks wear yellow robes flap (class identity). Outside also wore a cloth called a brown robe and yellow (class color) depending on the rank. Also kind of multicolored robes to use when running board.

Robe is a square piece of cloth almost every width ranging from 2 m to 3 m. This is not an instant cloth that is because many pieces back under certain qualifications. In Buddhist scriptures known as forensic medicine, including the type: y contingent things, y ataxia, permanent medical conditions, medical cross vv..Y least five things that are due 5 piece (it) put together, he's ataxia by 7 piece (it) put together etc .. each type for each use case.

Describes a medical sheet contingent things, we see the following: Depending on the height of the wearer, y possible contingent from 1.6 m to 1.9 m long. Horizontally as in cloth - ie "things" - every "thing" that is 40 cm in breadth. But in "things" that are not interconnected between the "thing" to have a width of 5 cm strip of fabric separates (the "how"). On each "thing" vertically down, and divided into two unequal parts by the piece "how to" stop out. Longer section called "School", a short section called "short". In the "what" first "short" above, "school" underneath in the second, the "school" on top, "short" below etc .., ie staggered arrangement "school "and" short "between the" thing ". Overlooking a y (shirt) never the "short" and above, to the "how" (horizontal) with the number above for more beautiful. (Y contingent that has three "a" above, two "ways" at the bottom).

Behind baggy clothes, with oversize fraction of the Muslim girl was the freedom, comfort, other than what the media world feminist sketch here. A Muslim woman wears traditional costumes Hijab is no longer a new thing. In Arabic, Hijab means concealment, is the clear delimitation of gender in society.
There were so many mixed opinions around the Hijab. With enhanced social freedom as Western, hiding behind layers of thick fabric, baggy is an oppression against women. But for insiders, who still wears his everyday Hijab plate, they believe they are pleasing God by ourselves. Because the dignity of the woman is a sacred thing, and Hijab is the shield layer, boundaries help them protect their own values ​​before the men do not know.
In brief, Hijab gives them a sense of respect, and above all, pride is a pious child of God.Muslim women are often regarded as living in the life of the framework that ceremony, in which the representation of himself as a thing not allowed. This is absolutely not true. Shielding body, the tight veil can be the difference between Muslim women than Western liberal girl, but does not mean that two components of this world absolutely nothing in common.
Photographer Monique Jaques had the opportunity to access Miss Muslimah 2014, a contest for Muslim women around the world to compete for beauty, education based on Islamic criteria. After the contest ended, what reporter achieve not only the photos fewer people have the opportunity to witness, but also a different view on Muslim women, that these girls than Western women do not differ that much, even with so many similarities.
“I think those girls are educated, have dreams and ambitions of their own, the wear Hijab absolutely does not affect them.” Monique Jaques share.The girls talk around the topic of women, from the makeup, fashion trends to the movies, on TV programs. They also like to hold the camera, camera phone selfie, singing while waiting on stage. Feeling not unlike the girls in Western societies, except that the girls here wears the Hijab substandard.
Many will ask, if the Hijab symbolizes humility, cloaking properties of the Muslims themselves, so why this young girl makeup and beauty seemed confident before the camera lens? That is because they are free to do all the things I want, no concept or moral constraint that exists. At least in the modern Muslim community, not in the extreme class.

Freedom makeup, freedom to do what we like new exactly what Muslim women do today.
But that’s a beauty contest, but under Islamic criteria, all the evaluation criteria stop with beauty and intelligence, education of girls. These are the most important of a beautiful woman in the Muslim community.
“We wanted to find a high virtues can emulate role models for millions of girls around the world Islam is.” Eka Shanty, the founder of Miss Muslimah about the contest criteria.



The clothes of monks, nuns, Buddhists have many names such as for legal, forensic, septic loaded server, septic uniform, outstanding applications for legal, lotus recovery, server liberation, liberation colon Minister Apparel, Export World Apparel, Apparel glass ceiling, no structural recovery, saffron …Costumes of Buddhism in our country is very rich and diverse and this is best realized in the implementation and daily rituals. Looking at the nun’s garb see also sects of Buddhism. Vietnam Buddhism has many sects, which mainly Mahayana sects and Theravada. Because there are many different views on forms and colors for each denomination legal, so the people of every denomination ordained do not want to change clothes characteristic of his sect.

What we’re seeing pictures of the brown shirt, yellow, blue or indigo conjure the image simple life, ordinary people who ordained. Venerable Thich Tam Dinh, Linh Quang Pagoda, Truc Ninh, Nam Dinh province said: the color is the color of earth, the incense, the leaves, tubers, roots, very homely intimacy with life often. It is especially in times of industrialization, modernization of today, this color gives notice cultivate peaceful place. This article I discussed in greater detail to the clothes of Vietnam Buddhist Mahayana.
Costumes Mahayana Buddhist Vietnam currently includes: clothes everyday and ceremonial costumes. Costumes daily divided into 2 types: plain clothes in temples and casual seating. Traditionally, the clothes worn in the temple is the yellow shirt, brown, blue and long pants. The new-home (also called novices, novices) usually wear blue. When sitting or off the long brown coat for the monks, a blue tunic for nuns. Venerable Thich Gia Quang said today there are some usual daily monks dressed in yellow. The wear yellow or brown not express high or low positions, which can not make the monk noble or ignoble. Yellow kit worn everyday emerged in recent years. Austrian daily and ceremonial robe various forms, the biggest in the sleeve. Everyday small sleeves, longer sleeves wider ritual. Costumes aka ceremonial vestments, is the kind you wear to perform Buddhist rituals. This type of vestments Mahayana monks preserved to this day. Especially, in the vestments of Mahayana Buddhism also has rear coat, for the monks dressed in yellow, blue shirt nuns.Besides daily costumes and vestments monk also has brown coat CASA or yellow, depending on rank. Casa Austria is a cloth almost square, so many small cloth joined on certain specifications.
According to Buddhist legend, shirt CASA formed from pieces of cloth of people contributed to the quarterfinals for the practice. When multiple pieces of cloth and then, the monks invite ask Buddha said so dressed styled any way. Human crossing a field, Buddha and transmitted immediately pointing garment in the form of plots. Therefore where the sleeve is also called legal CASA being filled, the rice pray more, they generate prosperity.
Theravada Buddhism, also known as Theravada by way similar to the way of living the monastic life of the Buddha. Among them, the raiment of Theravada monks is modeled similar to the garb of monks living Buddha. Theravada monks sect, costumes unfortunately the clothes as Mahayana sect that only yellow cloth draped over him. That means, the Theravada monks wrapped y instead of “health campaign” by a monk’s robe a large cloth, sewn from small pieces of fabric.
Whenever see renouncers formal wear or casual, the image was still proud of the distinctions of the Vietnam Buddhist monks.
Thus, we see, although Theravada sect and Mahayana, style and color of the medicine does not have a completely identical, but the heterogeneity that has created its own definition through recovery measures.
