All art including fashion has a long history of acquiring influences from various cultures but where is the line between cultural appreciation and cultural misappropriation? At what point does respect for other cultures lead to or become an exploitation of cultural imagery?

Join us for an engaging dialogue that recognizes the difference between appreciation and appropriation. Panelists Viet Than Nguyen, Josh Kun, Melissa Chan, and Aditi Mayer add their perspectives to this historical yet timely conversation.
