Qwear: “Summer of Love” Style Shoot Explores Cultural Appreciation


If you’ve ever been to a music festival or seen “fashion footage” from them, you may have noticed a whole lot of questionable clothing choices. Despite popular websites like Vice and Buzzfeed tackling the issue of cultural appropriation, a lot of people still seem to have no problem wearing the garb from oppressed cultures outside of their own as a fashion statement.

Inspired by Vice’s interview with random white people wearing dashikis, bindis, cornrows, and headdresses at Coachilla, dapperQ contributor and Trinidadian producer Cee Sando did a photoshoot with POC designers and a POC crew to demonstrate what it looks like when cultural traditions are respectfully appreciated in fashion.
