  1. Hello,

    I am a journalist from London and I am currently writing a piece about cultural appropriation in fashion with a particular focus on festival fashion. I would absolutely love to talk to Jessica about her thoughts on the topic and how festival goers can appreciate not appropriate native american culture through their fashion- no more poorly thought out headdresses!

    Please get in contact if you would be interested in having a chat.

    All the best,
    Megan Hill
