You can’t blame designers for using a dress as traditional as the Burka to make a statement about society.

Some have taken the ultra-conservative dress made of felt and made it flirty, a la Marilyn Monroe. Others took the low tech dress and made it hi-tech so the dress broadcasts what the wearing looks like underneath.

All these Burkas pushes societal norms. That’s what fashion designers do - they push. See the Burka as prison, the catwalk Burka , the human hair Burka , Burka for skiing, the bullet proof Burka and more in the gallery.
