Essay: Tell about a traditional dress

Today we will learn about the traditional costumes  of  some  countries.  First,  you look  at  the  dress  that  some  people  are wearing. Decide where each person comes from.


1. Ao dai - The  traditional dress of Vietnam

For many centuries , poets , writers and musicians have mentioned the ao dai in poems , novels and songs . The ao dai is the traditional dress of Vietnamese women . Traditionally , it was frequently worn by both men and women . The design and material used for men were different from those used for women . Nowadays , women usually wear it , especially on special occasions . However , many Vietnamese women today often prefer to wear modern clothing at work , because its is more convenient . Now fashion designers want to change the traditional ao dai . Some have printed lines of poetry on it ; so it looks modern and fashionable .Others have added traditional designs and symbols such as suns , stars , crosses and stripes to the ao dai which is both  traditional  and fashionable .


2. Japanese - Kimono

 

The  kimono,  which  literally  means  "clothing",  is  one  of  the  world's  instantly  recognizable  traditional  garments.  Thanks  to  the  popularity  of ukiyo-e  woodblock  prints  in  the  West  at the beginning of this century, the  kimono    became  one  of  the  purist    images  of  Japan.  There  are  different types of kimono for different occasions and seasons, including those worn  by men.  

Women  wear  kimono  when  they  attend  traditional  arts,  such  as  a  tea ceremony or ikebana class. Girls and young single women wear furisode, a colorful style of kimono with long sleeves and tied with a brightly-colored obi  (sash).  Kimono  made  from  fabric  with  simple    patterns,  called  Edo
komon, are more plain and casual.  41 At weddings, the bride and groom will often go through several costume changes.  One  of  them  will  see  the  bride  in  a  shiromuku,  a  heavy, embroidered white kimono and wearing an elaborate hairpiece. The groom wears  a  black  kimono  made  from  habutae  silk  and  carrying  the  family crest, hakama (a pleated skirt) and a half-length black coat called a haori.
Western suits are more common for male guests.  For  funerals,  both  men  and  women  wear  plain  black  kimono.  With black suits being suitable for both, it's often difficult to tell whether a guy is going  to  a wedding  or  a  funeral  except  that  they  wear  a  white  tie  for weddings  and  a  black  tie  for  funerals.  On  January  15th,  20-year  olds celebrate  their  coming  of  age.  Most  women  wear  an  elaborately-colored kimono,  often  with  a  tacky  fur  boa.  Other  kimono-wearing  occasions include New Year, graduation ceremonies and Shichi-go-san for children.

3. Scotland's  national dress  - Kilt

Although  the  realisation  may  surprise  many  kilt  wearers,  Scotland's  national dress was invented by an Englishman living in Scotland.

It was developed from the philamore - a massive piece of tartan worn  with a belt and draped over the shoulder - by English industrialist Thomas  Rawlinson in the early 1700s with the idea to make life more comfortable for his workers.

Each kilt is made of about eight yards of material.  An average worsted wool kilt weighs around six pounds.  
Each  handmade  kilt  takes  a  total  of  about  15  hours  solid  work  to complete.  
There are more than 2000 tartans.  The most popular tartans are the Stewart tartans, Black Watch, Dress
Gordon and the Flower of Scotland.  The  oldest  tartan  is  the  Falkirk  tartan,  which  dates  to  around  AD245 and was discovered in a jar of coins near Falkirk.  

The first named clan tartan was Murray, in 1618.  The first tartan on the Moon was the Macbean, worn by Alan Bean on Apollo 12 in November, 1969
