Social media erupted when Marc Jacobs sent mostly white models with fake dreadlocks down the runway at New York Fashion Week on Thursday.

The women's crowns were piled high with swirls of colorful wool ropes, and many criticised the fashion designer for appropriating black culture and giving his models a black hairstyle without recognising the cultural inspiration.http://www.sfgate.com/style/article/...ek-9227313.php

Absurd. We don't accuse black people of cultural appropriation every time they use their phone, the internet or fly on a plane.

It seems US liberals constantly need something to be outraged by.

Because their 'culture' must be preserved, but ours has to be destroyed

Most of the clothes on fashion runways aren't supposed to look like people would wear them on a daily basis... it's an art form.
You look at these 'ridiculous' clothing items (as some would say) and take inspo from them. Like tassles, fur, lace etc might be in.
