Fashion as latest tool of suppression

Fashion says a lot about an individual, whether they are dedicated followers or not. Most of us take that choice for granted. In Iran Fashion provides the state for another excuse to control basic rights for women. On the streets the fashion police are never far away and arrests are common place for women who have not adhered to the goverments strict dress code.

So what would a (government approved) fashion show in Iran look like. Is it a well of creativity and inspiration? Is it a platform for expression and individuality? Well the ministry for culture and Islamic orientation seem to believe so: stating that it “frees Iranian women of the shackles of western fashion industry”, reflecting what women “actually want to wear”. Have they missed the irony?

See for yourself…
