The Middle-East is radically different than the West

From language to culture to society to religion, everything is incredibly different. Even behaviour and values. What one considers normal, the other considers backwards. So it makes you wonder how one item looks in another.

For example, you can’t really imagine women wearing miniskirts in the Middle-East, but there are definitely companies selling clothes there. So how do they look? How do they sell them?

Well, unsurprisingly, the answer is both fascinating and strange. It’s almost saddening, but I prefer to look at it as a study of differences. The most common theme is that the females are often more clothes in products and images in the West than they are in the Middle-East.

There’s definitely a degree of censorship, and it’s just a curious thing to see.
