Muscat is the Capital of Oman. It is a major port for international trade and is a culturally diverse city. Fashion in Muscat and the neighbouring towns varies dramatically, with a mix of nationalities, faiths and tribal beliefs contributing to the different styles seen on the street. Muscat women of a number of main traditional variations in the Capital Region, three we chose to focus on here are: 1. Lawatia Tribe; 2. Muscati; and 3. Al Beloushi Tribe. However, today in Muscat we also see an interweaving of styles, patterns and clothing practices from across the Sultanate. Designers and tailors have taken elements from throughout Oman to create new styles in endless variation.
