May’s Unconventional Jacket Not Cultural Appropriation

Theresa May’s striking jacket was made by Nigerian fashion house Emmy Kasbit from the designer Emmanuel Okoro. Apparently
“The brand was birthed out of its passion to clothe the unconventional man and woman who likes to think outside the box and who are willing to defend their outfit as being deliberate and not accidental.”
So not cultural appropriation, not accidental, just unconventional and “out of the box”. Could the fashion label have wished for a model less in tune with the brand’s values?
