Wedding dress, central role in the Mass.
First Communion outfit, the traditional ceremonial robes of Catholic groups or organizations.
Catholicism has given the world some of its best traditions, including clothing worn for special occasions, folk costumes for feast days, hats and cloaks and gowns and sashes associated with festivals and seasons. To lose sight of this is to lose much--and to foster a good sense of the right use of clothing could be one of the best fruits of a new evangelization.
In order to do this, we have to lead the culture, challenge it creatively, tease it, and draw out what is good and true in people's desire to adorn themselves. There is room here for a new apostolate. It could include some understanding that rules have their place. A dress code for papal events? (They have one at St. Peter's, at Assisi, and at other major shrines and churches). And how about a competition to design an attractive T-shirt-style top, to include a logo and good use of religious symbolism, as part of the preparations for World Youth Day? The top twenty or so designs could be chosen to be on sale as "official WFD" wear and could come as part of a clear statement about a dress code, mentioning no bare middles or spaghetti straps.
And there is much more for Catholic groups, colleges, women's organizations and so on to tackle. It might be that there is a fashion magazine waiting to be born, new fashion events created, some conferences held, some new trends set. Is there a group or some individuals who would be willing to make a start
