Fashion Pad Shoutout: Post Colonialism

Fashion can often feel like a pesky younger sister. They are always stealing your favorite dresses, shoes, and other goodies to make themselves look better. Pastiche is the ultimate fashion asset when it comes to cobbling together what is new and hot. While this makes patent law in fashion pretty tough, we have to admit it brings up some unfortunate issues of cultural ownership. Which is why when Fashion Pad highlights how popular tribal prints are we alternatively say "ohh pretty" and ouch post-colonial. Identity politics aside there are some pretty great choices out there. We just suggest you don't think to hard about authenticity in dress when you pick them out. Otherwise you are liable to feel a smidge burnt out about just who you are and aren't oppressing with that pretty sun-dress. More Shoutouts Here
