In the early 2000s, Asian fashion influences became increasingly significant in local and global markets.

Since then, the idea of the fashion designer as a celebrity in their own right has become increasingly dominant. Changes in clothing often took place at times of economic or social change, as occurred in ancient Rome and the medieval Caliphate, followed by a long period without significant changes.
