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.
