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.
