Aya Tsukioka–Safety Clothing?


Japanese designer Aya Tsukioka has developed a novel way to feel safer for woman who are wary of walking alone due to the threat of attack in our ever violent world.

She’s developed a maxi skirt that transforms ninja style into a disguise. It changes the person wearing it into a coca cola machine. Such machines are widely seen on the streets of Japan hence her choice of design. How innovative. She’s also designed a similar product for children too.


They’re not cheap as they sell for around £400.

Would you feel safer in one of these?

I’m not sure I would but at least this designer is acknowledging the fact that as women we are feeling less and less safe on the streets these days. I know that my heart is constantly racing when I walk alone at night. Although a rape alarm may be a better choice than a disguise.



  1. LOVE the design so much, but not so much on the price tag, but seriously, how cool are these dresses!!!


  2. They are soo creative this is why I love Japanese designers :)

  3. They are soo creative this is why I love Japanese designers :)

  4. I think that it is sad a wold if women and childres have to wear disguise clothing in order not to be in danger.
    Still really interesitng.
    Thank a lot for sharing my dear friend.

  5. I wouldn't feel safer.. but omg those are SO FUN xDD
    I really had to laugh those are so cool!

    Other than that it is fun it is so amazing and creative! I just love it!

  6. I would not feel safer but it's an interesting concept, kind of more of an art piece and definitely speaks volumes

  7. Wow, what an interesting idea. I don't know that I'd feel safer, it seems like it may be more of a statement about diminishing safety. But still, so creative and innovative.

    So What If I Like Pretty Things

  8. My thoughts exactly :) its sad how unsafe women feel these days :/

  9. yea i agree :) so unique too xx

  10. What an interesting idea. I agree that I wouldn't necessarily feel safer wearing one of these designs, but the concept is very creative. I think by the time I felt the need to revert to my "costume" whatever was scaring me would already be on my tail and see me do it!

  11. Not sure how I feel about this - very interesting and innovative. I wonder if it would really work.
