English term or phrase: reference-weaving
Hello:

One emerging theme was an elevated street style based on culture-blending and ­reference-weaving.

What does "­reference-weaving" mean in this context?

Thank you in advance.

Selected answer:incorporating references to different cultures
Explanation:
We could do with a little more context, but basically it means the same as "culture blending". If you're translating this, I'd be inclined to combine the two English phrases into one.

agree  Melissa Stanfield: Agree - the term "weaving" implies overlap at multiple points, as in woven fabric. More context would be helpful though, because it is by no means a common turn of phrase.
