Different universities around the world follow the same tradition of organizing graduation ceremonies for their successful graduates. Western and eastern cultures differ in style with regards to graduation dress code but all of them follow strict rules on wearing formal dress for this solemn occasion. Usually, their graduation dresses reflect their social and cultural heritage. Different versions of the toga or gown worn by monastic school of medieval Europe are the choice for most western universities. In some Asian countries, they wear the traditional kimono along with western clothing. Strict adherence to the dress code is imposed by some universities. However if the university permits that certain modifications can be made, then you may also design your own graduation dress for a more personalized look and stand out from the rest.
