african-inspired

Dear fashion designers, this is how NOT to “borrow” from another culture 

On Friday, Japanese designer Junya Watanabe presented a menswear show with clear nods to Africa, with models draped in beads, bones, masks and other tribal accoutrements. The African-inspired pièce de résistance: headpieces piled high with braided, twisted hair. Guess who we didn’t see on the runway.
