Clothes-makers from the northwestern Bihor region were more than a little bemused when they got wind of a 2017 Dior collection.A Romanian version of the garment, historically worn on important occasions, sells at home and abroad for around 500 euros ($580) – almost a month's salary in one of the European Union's poorest countries.La Blouse Roumaine, which promotes the Romanian blouse to encourage women to wear it, juxtaposed the different versions side by side on Twitter, adding #givecredit.With traditional regional costumes being worn by fewer and fewer people, demand for the clothes had almost died out until the controversy over the Dior jacket reignited interest.One important detail on the Dior version did not escape the notice of Bihor residents though – the jacket worn by the fashion model was adorned with motifs – a phallic symbol – strictly worn only by men.
