The main purpose of this article is to explore religious inspirations which appear in contemporary fashion and to reveal the differences in introducing particular religions.Fashion industry uses eastern religious motifs to strengthen the authority of the fashion world, on the other hand, associates naked female bodies with Christian or Muslim symbolism as a refusal of religious dictation. In the article, it is proved that religious inspirations appearing in fashion became a sign of a wider phenomena, which is related to the process of secularization and at the same time exploration of new forms of spirituality. Also addresses the question of fashion which exposes the repressive character of religion which intends to control human impulses and sexuality, as well as the problem of commercialization of eastern practices. Semiotic analysis of photography allowed me to test and prove the hypotheses raised earlier. This research method recognizes not only what the literal layer of photography is but also the whole cultural context which includes artist, his work and receiver.
