Summary/Abstract: Clothing is a protective coating of the human body, is directly related to both the physical and the psyche. Due to the symbolism of the elements of plastic language, dots, lines, colors, spots, shapes, which make up the exterior appearance of the dressed clothing, it conveys an informative load to the viewers. Through clothing, people transmit both information concerning their social life, social position, job, age, sex, physical qualities, time and space framing, as well as temperament, personality, level of culture, or certain moral qualities. The messages communicated are deciphered by the associations and analogies each viewer makes with the information he has previously memorized from the environment.
