RIP the King of Cling: Azzedine Alaia

It was quite sad for me to watch this. I don't own any of his clothes nor do I really want to, but a pang of sadness came over me; that feeling we all feel when a fellow human exits our world. I give him credit and will always admire him for giving women the outlet to celebrate our curves and sexuality through his clothing and aesthetic.

Kimono as Traditional Clothing in Japan?

When we think of Japan and the words “traditional clothing”, the first thing that comes to mind is kimono. Beautiful, embroidered clothing that influences many fashion trends and Western accessories, the kimono is worn in Japan to this day for special ceremonies. Dubbing the kimono as “traditional wear” in Japan is a misguided notion, especially from an outsider's perspective. Kimono’s were introduced in recent history and made by people who migrated to Japan. Japan has layers of diversity, even when it seems like a homogeneous country. Not only are there minorities, but there are also natives like the Ainu people. Because of human migration throughout history, certain populations overtake the image of an area. Thus, national holidays, diet, and clothing don't always represent the full spectrum of cultural diversity. Luckily, people in Japan are more aware and willing to revive some parts of history that tell a more accurate story of how Japan came to be. When countries like Japan and the United States take an honest look into their history, they redefine the representation of their respective country and end up with a story that has justice in its accuracy.
