To the person who tagged this with “saami” and “traditional” without bothering to read the original image description:
That dress is a fake. Knock-offs like that are filed under cultural appropriation, and in addition to that the photographer is engaging economical exploitation (or, to put it more succinctly, colonialist douchebaggery) of a culture in which he has no part by selling prints of this photo.
Please do not blog (or buy!) shit like this as if it’s the real deal or if you can’t even tell the fucking difference.
