“Natasha Ashley Brokeshoulder, for instance, who is Diné, wore a wing dress created by her father-in-law, while her breastplate was assembled by her husband. “I got the right to wear the regalia that I have from my husband, who is Absentee Shawnee from the Southern Plains,” she said, adding that it is respectful to gain permission from other tribes to wear their specific styles of garment.”

‘Others chose a more historical approach to fashion. Zeke Arjeanas, who is also Diné and won first place in the men’s category, referenced the Long Walk of the Navajo (the 1860s deportation of this indigenous tribe from their native land) for his traditional Clothing Contest outfit. “What I’m wearing is a blanket—not a Navajo blanket, but an army-issued blanket that was issued to the Navajos [at that time],” he said. “With the army-issued blanket, it’s a lot thicker and scratchier versus a Navajo textile blanket, which was more fine, lightweight, and waterproof.”’
^ Two looks from Korina Emmerich with jewelry by Tania Larsson
“...the new collection of the New York–based designer Korina Emmerich (Puyallup), whose asymmetrical vests and graphic wool coats offered a modern interpretation of her tribe’s punchy aesthetic. She also used Gwich’in-inspired jewelry by Larsson, mentioned above, in the show. “What I admire in Korina’s work is her modern, impeccable cuts,” Larsson said. “There is a traditional element that is inherent within my work because of the materials that I use and through the process that they are acquired, such as trade and through community exchanges.””

I'm. I'm thinking about Imperial era hairstyles.
And how wearing braids, particularly thin braids that are noticeably different or separate from the rest of the hair, is seen as a low-key sign of supporting the Jedi. It gets complicated in places where braiding carries heavy cultural weight, like Alderaan or Chalacta...
But baby Leia having that one thin braid hanging down from her bun... It's not a padawan sign, it's not even outside the lines of what Alderaani royals wear.
But it's low-key her parents saying 'we haven't forgotten.'
Imitation padawan braids are a major peacepunk thing in urban areas, maybe?
Low-key I'm imagining the setting from @deniigi's "Cody harasses city government to clean up the streets, this is disgusting and a disappointment, you should be ashamed of yourselves" AU as one where peacepunks are definitely doing the hair thing
Witcher 2 hairstyles! Trivia: the low half ponytail (hairstyle at start of main game in Witcher 3) is called a Squirrel’s tail, and the undercut + ponytail (prologue hairstyle in Witcher 3) is called a Cintrian pendulum.
