once again people of tumblr let’s spread the word.
the brand didn’t give credit for their inspiration and i wouldn’t call it just inspiration since they are identical.
what is worse is the fact that they claim it to be of “african-inspiration”. confusing romanian and african culture is offensive for both cultures because they have different characteristics.
also, when we tried to reach them, they deleted comments on the brand’s facebook page.
THIS IS A PIECE OF ROMANIAN HISTORY, TRADITION AND CULTURE AND YOU CAN’T CALL IT YOURS.
there are romanian designers who have more rights to use traditional inspiration and they struggle with their collections and then here comes the big brands using cultures around the world to make money.
