Abstract

This study, which was carried out in order to identify the problems faced by Turkish women living abroad with respect to dress culture, is a descriptive study based on a scan model. The sample group for this study comprised 394 Turkish women aged 20 and over living in London in the United Kingdom, which is home to many cultures as well as its own specific culture. As a result of an analysis of the data obtained from the survey prepared by the researcher it was determined that people coming to London from the major cities in Turkey encountered fewer problems with respect to dress culture than people coming from towns and villages in Turkey, and that people with an income of less than £1,000 a month experienced more problems than people with a higher level of income. Furthermore, it was also determined that the sample group aged 50 and over experienced more adaptation problems with respect to dress culture, and that these problems were generally due to the length of clothing and how revealing it was.
