When reflecting on clothing as an artifact of personal and group culture it seems that there are many interpretations.  An artifact can be something that you believe can describe you, something that it reminds you of somewhere, someone, or something. It can also be an object of belief, a demonstration of thought, or a symbol of meaning.  What are you wearing now?  Weather we are aware of it or not, the clothing we wear makes a statement to others.

The wardrobe has many different meanings in this world, to some people it is personal and to others is just a space where they can place their clothes and/or save their shoes. But to other people it describes the person; the owner of the wardrobe. It describes the person’s personality, how they feel, what type of colors they like, what kind of clothes they feel most comfortable. Some people believe what you wear describes in what type of mood you are feeling that day. Every wardrobe that exists in this world is different.
