Research finds that people who identify strongly with their racial ethnicity are generally happier. So, what better way of spreading joy and self confidence than with ethnic fashions?

"Having positive feelings about one's ethnic group appears to provide an extra boost of positivity in individuals' daily lives" claims Wake Forest University's Psychology Professor Lisa Kiang. "The positive effects of ethnic pride found in this study could suggest that parents and society in general should encourage strong ethnic identity in families."

"As a Fashion Designer of ethnic clothing, I've known self identity brings happiness since my humble beginnings. Like most young girls, I've learned playing with ethnic dolls introduces a child to positive self identity and creativity", states Jackie Morilas of EthnicSale.com. Accordingly, at EthnicSale.com you'll find African doll figures that represent cultural icons as well as toys for young girls. Each doll is eloquently dressed to represent the beauty of African culture.

Some of my research shows that feeling good about your ethnic background and feeling strongly connected to your ethnic group is related to all kinds of positive outcomes; including that daily happiness boost. So much to the extent that dressing in ethnic fashions can facilitate these good feelings about one's ethnic background, I would agree that wearing ethnic fashions could be a good experience."
