FOLKTALE HEROINE

reemacra_spring2016

Above: Not sure which heroine exactly, but its a vague-enough costume name to wear this beautiful Reem Acra Spring 2016 dress.

THOROUGHLY MODERN WITCH

Above: Nobody does witchy like Wendy Nichol. This dress is from her Spring 2016 collection, but pretty much anything from any collection will do.

BOTH GARDEN & GARDENER

Above: Another more conceptional costume. You’ll definitely turn heads in this wild Vivenne Westwood Spring 2016 ensemble–just look at the beekeeper hat!

RAVER PROM QUEEN

Above:…or whatever name you can think of that will suit this wild, fun ensemble from Betsey Johnson Spring 2016 that is too fun to pass up.

ICE QUEEN

Lightning-Fast Forgiveness, Racism, & Dsquared2

Fashion (and really, the world in general when it comes to the wayward ways of errant men) has a tendency to sort of wrist-slap designers when they screw up, and then lavish them with praise the second they correct their course.

Take, for example, London-based and Canadian-born designers Dsquared2.

For the Fall 2015 season Dsqaured2 showed a highly-offensive collection that made waves for its extreme cultural appropriation and general racism:

Above: from the racist Fall 2015 collection of Dsquared2.

Then, they rather repeated this mistake with their Fall 2016 collection, sending models down the catwalk with “Victorian Samurai” outfits. The collection got hardly any press, good or bad. Perhaps the world was just tired of Dsquared2’s continual, lazy, racist designs.

The tides turned for Dsquared2 with their recent Spring 2017 collection, which was praised and lauded by fashion reporters. In other words, the disgrace period for Dsquared2 was all too brief, and the fashion world quick to forgive some pretty serious offenses.

While the collection was pretty fun (pictured above), it’s dissapointing because it proves that they can design a collection that is not racist, but they have clearly chosen not to for previous seasons. Sigh, #whiteprivelege in fashion, amiright?
