What is culture?
"Culture is the characteristics and knowledge of a particular group of people, defined by everything from language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music and arts."
Culture is related to the development of our attitude. Our cultural values influence how we approach living. According to the behaviorist definition of culture, it is the ultimate system of social control where people monitor their own standards and behavior. Our cultural values serve as the founding principles of our life. They shape our thinking, behavior, and personality.
Fashion Show Idea
Our theme for the Mosaic Fashion Show, is World Culture. We want to incorporate a couple of major countries on the stage in a creative colorful way to truly show our appreciation of each country and how important they are to BCSS students and staff. One of the ideas we came up with is to have each models face painted with the different country flags from Europe, North America, East Asia and so on. Each model if possible can wear any traditional clothing from their own country or the country assigned to them.
For clothing, we accept any kind of traditional outfits from any of the countries assigned to each model. Other than traditional outfits, if there aren't any traditional outfits to use we could go for a casual style but still have traditional colors of the country and even accessories.
Reasons why this is a good idea?
- Our school is diverse, students and teachers come from multiple different cultural backgrounds
- The idea is creative and visually appealing, also it's something BCSS hasn't done before.
