This designer is selling a ‘refugee’ dress for $119 and doesn’t understand what’s wrong with that
They promise it’s ‘pre-washed’
by Teuta Hoxha
Just when you thought foreskin jeans were this years’ pie-in-the-face, 2017 has finally dealt the middle finger in the form of a “refugee dress.”
Brooklyn-based ‘urban nomadic’ brand UZI NYC has launched the collection which can only be described as loose fitting with a hem of current affairs, and are retailing the offense at $119. Brands like Alter Brooklyn – an Indie boutique – currently stock the item.
UZI NYC lists the dress as “pre-washed,” which seems like a seedy choice of words. Is this a refugee’s dress or are they just glamorizing and milking the biggest refugee crises in modern history to sell a dress, the subject of which can’t afford?
They also describe it as “finely woven” with “slight wrinkle effect,” as if it’s a Game of Thrones prop or something.
People have already expressed their disgust

Whatever the case, UZI have promised to wash away the rubble and salt water so you can have a refugee dress minus the refugee.
UZI NYC has not yet responded to babe’s request for a comment.

This Taylor Swift baby conspiracy theory is the craziest thing I’ve heard all week, tbh
WHO THINKS OF THIS STUFF

Lady Gaga killing her friend to absorb her powers, The Weeknd selling his soul to the devil, Larry Stylinson and all its offshoots.My favorite (though obviously fake one) is one that started circulating yesterday. After Taylor Swift dropped a teaser for her new promotional single "Gorgeous",…
