Note This videodisc addresses the process of commodification of Eastern culture by Western capital. "Yellow Apparel" invites awareness of the appropriation of Asian cultures within American consumerism, and of power struggles churning beneath the veneer of oriental ornamentation. Fashion and consumerism are often on the backs of women. "Yellow Apparel" explores the way exoticization exploits the bodies and beings of women of color while profiting from the insecurities of white women. With informative and passionate interviews from activists and academics
