University students become self-proclaimed fashion designers
A new movement has emerged in Chapasthan as university students claimed to be 'fashion designers' who can dictate which student should wear what. These self-proclaimed fashion designers seemed to be more concerned about female students' attire than that of male students.
Some experts said the movement had its roots in some esteemed judges saying that women in the country should dress according to its culture, or face assault. Other experts disagreed and said the wannabe fashion designers did not need any encouragement, because it was their long-cherished dream to tell women what to wear.
A majority of experts, however, said women should dress the way society tells them to.
Back to the "fashion designers", when asked about how they decide which person, more specifically female, should wear which dress despite never studying fashion design, one of the placard-owners said, "Look, you don't need to be president of America to criticise Donald Trump. You don't need to be a batsman to criticise Mushfiqur Rahim. You don't need to be an architect to build a building. You don't need to be a doctor to operate on somebody."
"I study geometry. So, I know much about the standard length and breadth of everything, and dress is just a part of my ocean of knowledge. Just be thankful that a sage person, like me, gave an absolute free opinion."
Another placard owner, wearing a tight and transparent sleeveless T-shirt, said, "I study geometry. So, I know much about the standard length and breadth of everything, and dress is just a part of my ocean of knowledge. Just be thankful that a sage person, like me, gave an absolute free opinion which could cost you thousands of dollars if you went to a foreign fashion designer."
The "fashion designers" did not limit themselves to giving opinions on women's dresses, they also think about the culture and the cultural assault that has been visiting Bangladesh from western nations for ages.
The students assured this Satireday correspondent that they are not neglecting their studies to become self-proclaimed fashionistas, and that they have taken the role of cultural protectors only after securing GPA-4.
Satireday met such a patriot and culture-specialist and asked him how cultural terrorists are plaguing the country. "You just cannot import western countries' culture here and ruin your Bengali one," he said, wearing a jeans and T-shirt and a baseball cap.
While asked if importers of cultures from not-so-western countries would be called cultural terrorists, he said, "Their dress is too long to cause cultural terrorism. Dress is the sole criterion to decide whether someone will be called a cultural terrorist. To clarify these difficult lessons, we, the fashion designers, are here. No worries, man. We teach people free of cost."
