In the West, black clothes and black cars have become fashionable. Zillions are invested in black. Srila Prabhupada is credited with saying “Any nonsense you do and if you say, ‘It is the latest fashion,’ everyone will do.” (Honolulu, June 7, 1975, according to “The Prabhupada Meditations Calender” from Krishna Balarama Mandir, Raman Reti, Vrindavana, India).
