Designer launches disguisable skirts

19
May '10
Aya Tsukioka, a Japanese designer has designed a skirt that doubles as a disguise, unfolding to look like a Coca-cola vending machine, which actually, is a colourful way out for women to blend into a busy street to avoid a chaser.

The 31-year old designer has designed this outfit with a view to help women to wander free without any fear of crime and get rid of her attackers. As there are a number of vending machines positioned on many of Japan's city streets, women in the country have many opportunities to hide themselves behind this exclusive skirt.

Tsukioka showed off the apparel by lifting up the flap on the skirt, exposing a large cloth piece printed with the bright red Coca-Cola logo, and demonstrated how women wearing the skirt could hide behind it to get rid of a potential attacker while walking alone on streets.

Around 20 hand-sewn vending machine skirts have been sold. The designer expects to sell the outfit in global markets as well. The designer informed that this design is inspired by the Japanese ninja assassins, who cover themselves in black blankets to travel unidentified at night. According to the designer it is the easiest way for Japanese women to hide and safeguard themselves.
