Trends… We all have seen them come and go, change with times. We all have been a part of different trends over the years. A little twist to a traditional dress and it becomes a new fashion and we all love it. Mixing things up a little and crisscrossing Indian and foreign is another nice twist to fashion. But what happens when we try to copy others? We look like a fool. Yes.
While Indians are trying to get into foreign countries’ fashion, there is a British brand who copied our ethenic dress in the most hideous way. The brand is selling our Desi Kurti with videshi twist and it is totally inappropriate.
British clothing company Thrifted.com is selling Indian salwar kameez as ‘vintage Boho dresses’ for $36.19 (₹2,567 approx.) and above. As per reports, the company started as University sideline business and it is the top ASOS seller and operates worldwide.

However, twitter is not impressed by this and wondering what happened to our salwar kameez.
Not to mention the fact that hey're selling an incomplete outfit for 36 whopping dollars🤣🤣🤣

There's a well established term for this, it's called cultural appropriation.

Really concerned what happened to the salwars or pyajamis of these kurtas. Or are they sold separately as vintage boho chic colourful indie oriental exotic pants? 🤔🤔
