The author examines specificities of woman’s dress among Dagestan peoples and pinpoints its elements which can be interpreted as a result of interaction of ethnic traditions with urban universalism. She argues that certain things, which had become fashionable, were spreading through the entire region, crossing cultural and linguistic boundaries. At the same time, traces of the local fashion and its attributes (reflecting the ethnic-cultural specificity of this or that people or status things common to the Caucasus) are often weakly present or not seen at all in the everyday life of Dagestan diasporas in other, especially urban, surroundings.
