    Talking Fashion is on the march! Afghans get designer burqas

    to its first fashion show in decades, with models displaying designer garments at a hotel in the capital, Kabul.
    The show, which made the news on Afghanistan's Tolo TV channel, attracted an audience of expatriates and well-to-do Afghans.

    Clothes made from Afghan textiles, including fashion burqas, were shown off by non-Afghan models to the accompaniment of traditional local music.

    Organisers said they did not want to court controversy by using models from the conservative Muslim country.

    The Taleban, who ruled the country in the 1990s before being ousted in 2001, enforced laws requiring women to cover themselves from head to toe.

    Nearly five years after the Taleban's fall, many Afghan women still choose to cover up completely when in public.

    Balancing act

    One of the designers behind the show, Italian Isabella Ghidoni, told Reuters: "We invited a lot of Afghan women to attend the show but not to be models."

    The garments on display were body-skimming rather than skimpy, and covered the models' chests, legs and arms.

    Nooria Farhad, one of those in the audience, harboured her own hopes for the future.

    "It will be much better and more effective if, in future, our Afghan models do fashion shows and show the world Afghan clothes," she said.

    "But we know many families still do not allow their daughters to do things like this."

    Fashion sense

    Ms Ghidoni and her partner, Afghan designer Zolaykha Sherzad, started off by training women in fashion and jewellery design and went on to sell their creations in Kabul shops.

    Ms Sherzad said small fashion shows were held in the city before war broke out in the late 1970s.

    "There's not much in terms of the fashion we see in the West but there is fashion within a private environment, within the houses," she said.

    "People like to be fashionable."

    I love the sparkly burqas, but I am ashamed that I enjoy them. I forgot why I'm supposed to be ashamed, but there you go.

    Goodness gracious! As soon as I clicked on the link, I bursted out laughing.

    I like the pink burqas unlike the usual black burqas. It must be so hot to wear them.
    Rock the fuck on!

    you guys are a crackup
    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.

    I am so not for burqas but if the Afghans are for it i appreciate the show organizators respected the tradition of Afghanis and presented a very decent show.
