The paper "Globalization Phenomena and Cultural Impacts" is a great example of management coursework. Globalization is the process of worldwide interlinking and connection in all living aspects to enhance information and communication flow from one region to another. Globalization affects individuals both positively and negatively in various areas such as political organization, financial, economic aspects, and social aspects (Boudreaux, 2008). One of the most important facts about globalization is that communication has been made easy in such a way that people from all walks of life can share experiences and influence the way of living of other people. The globalization phenomena have led to acceptance and accommodation of different cultures by people due to increased sharing of information through various platforms such as social media, print media, broadcast media, and interaction through educational institutions.
Through all these avenues, there has been openness and tolerance to divergent cultures all over the globe ranging from fashion, entertainment, economic, tourism, political, education, healthcare, sports, and law among other aspects. The major global forces attributed to globalization in all aspects include technological advancement, media, and improved transport systems (Kruse, 1993). 2.0 Globalization and Fashion Cultures Globalization being a gradual and effective widespread phenomenon has expressed its effects on the fashion industry from ancient ages to current times.
Ease of dissemination of information from place to place especially through media has led to westernization of how people dress and fashion in general. The traditional dressing in the majority of the places in the world is being abandoned as the new westernized mode of dressing is being embraced (Bordo, 2003). Technology, being the main factor fuelling globalization has improved from time to time making globalization penetrate more even to most remote areas in the world.
As a result, in people’ s lives, they virtually socialize, knowing the way of living of other people. This leads to individuals changing their perceptions and attitudes about the external cultures and accommodate them. Ladieswear such as trousers and mini-skirts started as a western culture through model showcasing and advertisement and as spread all over the world.
