Paris is always a good idea: 5 fashion stories you missed this week

Welcome to our weekly news recap where we talk everything Dallas, style and, most importantly, fashion.

1. Marc Jacobs creates controversy

Marc Jacobs closed New York Fashion Week this year by showing colorfully clad models wearing sky-high platforms and opulent coats, dresses and accessories. The beauty looks (pastel dyed, faux dreadlocks by Guido Palau, topping each model’s head), however, were the most talked about. While fans accused Jacobs of cultural appropriation through his use of dreadlocks on white models, he was quick to defend his choice and cited rave culture as his inspiration for the collection. Many were upset that he neglected to mention black culture in any of his comments about the collection’s inspiration. Meanwhile The Washington Post also responded in Jacobs’ defense, arguing his right to artistic license.
