    On this episode of Style Out There, our host, Connie Wang ventures to Namibia to learn about the fashion of the Herero people. Still in recovery from a genocide, the clothes they still wear today represent a lot more than just an outfit. Watch this episode of Style Out There to see these traditions featured in a fashion week in Namibia!

Thank you for shedding a light on something I've never heard about, and explaining the history behind it! Props to these Herero women for continuing and modernizing this tradition. Also, Connie was so respectful and genuinely interested throughout. She knew how to step back and let the Herero women shine, which is so nice to see.

It goes to show you how psychotic the people that took part in the colonization were because they thought the people that embraced the earth were not civilized or human but they raped the women and sometimes the men. So like these people aren't human but you can still fk them? Like I'm sure they didn't fk actual animals

I like this video and what its showing it's just that they only go over the wedding dress look once and the video is titled like this video is something else. But I still think it's a good documentary.

"Adopted from the German colonizers?!!" This doesn't make any sense...why imitate, emanate, and or appropriate someone else tradition who oppressed your culture, and regarded your peoples less than human? Why not create your own national identity? This ideology only continues to perpetuate the post-traumatic slave ideology. Quote from "Willie Lynch Letter." "Let's create a slave." Let brake that natural string of independence from them and thereby create a dependency status, able to achieve a useful production and pleasure." The objectives of the "Willie Lynch Letter," is teaching the slave master(s) how to keep the negro in a frozen psychological state of independence by creating a submissive dependent mind...Deep!!!

Womenhood?? What, no, she is like 13, she is not a woman yet. When that specific group of people become men and women they get married and have kids. She is like 10 years to young. I don’t agree with that. I have to make that known.

WATCH @3:42, look at how the host steps through to the little girls side when her mom tries to take over. It looks like she is frustrated with the mom so she steps in to make sure that the most important day in her life is about her and not her mom. Does anyone else see this or no, what’s up with that?

Love seeing a culture portrayed with such positivity & that being passed on to the young people. Too many cultures that suffered horrific violence, abuse, genocide & repression are exacerbating that cycle with self destructive behaviours, which are just decimating them further

I have mixed feelings about the Herero German dress. First of all, why is it only the women who wear a German style and not the men? Secondly, why would you take pride in something you were forced to wear and now claim it as your culture? However, if your goal is to expose your oppressor and educate the younger generation on the truth of genocide I agree with wearing the dress, but that it may be a symbol of shame and not portrayed as a symbol of beauty. I'm also interested in knowing what was the native dress of the Herero before the Germans.
