My Culture
with Denise Marquez (@dmrq.z)

We chose to campaign against Cultural Appropriation. This subject has been discussed briefly worldwide appropriating Black culture in the music industry and fashion. However, this subject has not been as widely discussed with Asian culture. ‘Oriental’ fast fashion, I have seen it constantly in night clubs, university and social media. This is not saying that no other culture can wear anything from Asian culture. But to ask people to be respectful of its history and completely boycott clothes that sexualise or discriminate the Asian cultural dress such as, qipao and kimono. As well as stereotyping all the various Asian cultures into being ‘cute’ or ‘sexy’ under an umbrella term of ‘Oriental’ labelling it as a type of fashion.
