The set including a black kimono with color inserts the Japanese belt of Ob, a miniskirt and pins for hair, is on sale for 50 dollars. Participants of the Students Teaching about Racism in Society organization ("The students fighting against racism in society") have rebelled against designers of the company, having counted this dress as cultural expropriation. "This suit feeds a stereotype that the Asian woman is a temptation and a sexual object for men, and most often for white. And this suit was also designated the word "sexual". But geishas were never prostitutes, they entertained absolutely in a different way: the singing, dances, poetry and conversations" — they were indignant. Users of a social network of Twitter also were connected to students. "Just I remind that Halloween is tons of fun! But, please … To use cultural traditions as the suit is an ignorance and humiliation" — one were indignant. "To dress up the geisha is a cultural expropriation, especially in the USA — the country in which hatred to Japanese historically thrives" — have supported others.
