RuPaul's Drag Race, Season 2 Runway: Raven
My always favorite, the most robbed queen ever, the one and only, Raven.
What is the relationship between clothing and cultural identity and how has that changed with modernization, globalization and cultural assimilation? Is it not absolutely beautiful how something with such age can still maintain relevance and importance in fashion, an industry built constant change and desire for the new?

If you look in the second to last picture, you can see an eye in the window in the mirror, like there’s someone looking into the dollhouse.
I still love this!
Furisode (振袖) is a style of kimono distinguishable by its long sleeves, which range in length from 85 centimeters for a kofurisode (小振袖) to 114 centimeters for an ōfurisode (大振袖).
Furisode are the most formal style of kimono worn by unmarried women in Japan.
Many parents buy the Furisode for their daughters to celebrate this significant point in a young woman’s life. Furisode is a formal kimono for single women, it is brightly colored and made of very fine quality silk. In the very modest Japanese society wearing a Furisode is a very obvious statement. It is a very loud and clear advertisement that the single woman is available for marriage. (x)
