For this term in extension we were tasked
to be fashion designers. we have been
learning about 3 main
things, Cultural Appropriation, Self Consciousness,
and Sustainability. We had to choose two pieces of
clothing and I chose a Haori which originated from
Japan and a
Kahoa aka a Tongan lei. It was our job to find out what
materials it was made
from and if is okay for the environment.
Especially if it is appropriate
like for example it would be rude if a women
wore a bikini in somewhere where showing skin is like offensive
its just isn't right.
