02 Jul Update on my polygamous chic post
See, now I know the fashion world is coming to an end, I was afraid this would happen..Remember this story? After reading this I thought…. Yves Saint Laurent must be rolling in his grave. Do these tards actually consider this fashion? And who are the people that are showing so much interest in these clothing? Also, when did these polygamous sect people start using the internet? I thought that was not allowed..weird.
Here is the story
The raid by Texas authorities on a reclusive polygamous sect in April and their seizure of 400 children amid allegations of abuse has had an unexpected consequence — the launch of a new clothing line.Women from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, who were called upon to make clothes en masse for the children taken into state custody, have now turned their skills to commerce and launched an online shop.
The austere dresses with long-sleeves and high collars, loose-fitting pants, long-johns and modest blouses worn by members of the sect are reminiscent of 19th century American pioneers and highlighted the sect’s isolation.But with the children returned to their legal guardians following a court ruling in May, the sect’s members are turning their hand to providing their distinctive clothes to the general public — and the demand appears strong.
“We don’t know what to expect on demand but we have a flood of interest,” Maggie Jessop, a member of the sect, told the Salt Lake Tribune newspaper.At the website, www.fldsdress.com, the women propose clothing for children and teenagers that “meets the FLDS standards for modesty and neatness” and assert that “each piece is made with joy and care.”
Among the items for sale is a “Princess” dress with long sleeves and wide pleats available in eight different colors, while the site’s founders are hoping to soon add recipes and songs.The investigation into allegations of “spiritual” marriages of underage girls to older men at the sect compound continues, although no arrests have been made.Officials said girls were being “groomed” to accept sex with their middle-aged “spiritual husbands” as soon as they hit puberty and boys were being indoctrinated to perpetuate the cycle of abuse.
