“Cultural imperialism 101.”
A Canadian fashion magazine is in hot water after declaring that dashikis — a traditional West African clothing item — are the "newest It-item of note."
The Elle Canada article had a slideshow of celebrities like Beyoncé and Shay Mitchell wearing dashikis.
"Is the dashiki the new kaftan?" the headline asked.
"Originating from West Africa, this tribal printed shirt is on our style radar. See how celebs are rocking their dashikis."
