Cultural Style Week is an exciting week-long event that promises to get everyone talking about culture. It’s that one week in the year when we encourage people from all backgrounds to wear their heritage!
The western world has millions of migrants, 2nd and 3rd generation people that love and are proud of their heritage and cultures but have felt the need to disguise their unique beauty to fit in.
The goal of Cultural Style Week is to encourage people to explore and proudly celebrate their cultural heritage and cultural ideals of beauty with pride!
During Cultural Style Week (21-27 May), people from all over the world are encouraged to participate and take part wherever they are by proudly wearing their cultural styles across the week, and sharing their pictures online with the tag #culturalstyleweek to connect and share with others.
This unique and inclusive concept brings together people from all walks of life to showcase their unique, traditional style in its full glory, prompting harmonious dialogue around cultural tolerance and acceptance.
On Saturday 21 May 2022, the launch of this new global movement took place in London, one of the most diverse cities in the world, just a few steps away from London’s renowned Royal Exchange.
The momentous day which also coincided with the United Nations World Day for Cultural Diversity, saw people from all cultural backgrounds come together to celebrate the London launch of this new global movement.
Across the week, many people across the globe participated and took part by proudly wearing their cultural styles and sharing their pictures online with the tag #culturalstyleweek
