Fashion may see a shift in power as non-Western markets are expected to account for a greater share of global apparel and footwear sales in 2018 
The world's obsession with Western culture and fashion may die down as Asian markets pick up speed and usher in a new era ruled by places like China, Singapore and India. According to BoF, the combined share of apparel and footwear sales from Europe and North America will decrease from 50.4 percent of the global total in 2017 to 49.9 percent in 2018. However, the combined share of clothing sales from Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa are expected to rise to just above 50 percent next year and are predicted to increase in years to come. {Business of Fashion}
