Cutural Identity

According to “Hey, Mr.GQ!” By Christian Allaire, he says that he noticed the increasing appropriation of his native culture in the fashion industry and the integrity of his culture is something he constantl fights for. The biggest problem that the fashion industry has is that they do not know the difference between cultural appropriation and cultural appreciation. The 2 things are very different from each other. Cultural appreciation is when someone respects a culture enough to take the time and learn about it, talk to the people among the culture, and understand its history of the culture. Cultural appropriation is when someone adopts something from another culture and denies or ignores the people among that particular culture. The fashion industry should educate themselves by asking people who are native before they make offensive attire.
