If you follow cultural news, you will not be unfamiliar with cultural appropriation. It is the adoption of certain elements from another culture without the consent of people who belong to that culture. Normally, it harms cultures when a prevailing culture adopts things from a different culture without interpreting them, or manipulates them in ways that contradict the origins. However, if you try to know more cultural meaning of these elements, it will help more for your inspirations. Well, in the age of talking about speed, less and less people will do this.

The reality TV star, Kim Kardashian, post a line to social media for launching her new product "shape wear",along with this tweet: "Finally I can share with you guys this project that I have been developing for the last year. I've been passionate about this for 15 years." But what really irritated the Japanese is that she seems to have trademarked the word "kimono." She has been accused of cultural appropriation by Japanese people. Because this makes Japanese feel that Kim Kardashian's brand use kimono, their traditional costume to sell something totally not related."-it is disrespected.

As we know, Kimonos are an important part of Japanese culture, every Japanese wears it to celebrate engagements and marriages or to funerals. They are handed down from generations. For some Japanese people, they will also wear it in everyday life. So this case teaches every clothing designers a lesson: on top of new creations, we should also pay more attention and respect to cultures of every elements. Latest Lace Camisole, Fashion Camisole Chinese Manufacturer, AGNX-B181015
