The day Professor Hala shared the video on fashion in Korea with us in class was very interesting. I heard about many women getting surgeries in Korea but didn’t think it was that extreme. One part of the video a fashion designer said he wants more natural looking girls now which goes back to the idea that once many people dress a certain way then its not fashion anymore; since many girls in Korea get plastic surgery, it is no longer “fashionable” to be unnatural. It also didn’t surprise me how girls in Asia want to look like a white woman because its “beautiful”. When I was in high school, my mother had asked if I wanted to get plastic surgery on my nose so it would be skinnier and pointier, of course I said no but Asian parents have this idea of perfection, perfection in school grades, career, and beauty which then grows on the child. It’s not a bad thing to strive for perfection but when it comes to a point to thinking a certain race is perfection and beauty thus changing your entire facial feature to achieve this, then that isnt fashion nor perfection in my eyes.
