Globalization hasn't only changed the way we do business: it's had an impact on what we consider to be beautiful, too. Just as many lament the McDonalds and Starbucks on every corner, where once there might have been a local restaurant, so too has what people wear become homogenized in our Global Village. Love Levi's? Buy them practically anywhere. Want a pair of New Balance shoes in Eastern Europe? There's a specialty shop for that.
