emergency fashion

a wardrobe staple for rainy days
Designer Yael Mer created this interesting inflatable skirt right after the storm in New Orleans. Following the current trend that mixes usability with design, she took the concept a bit further, trying to see how fashion and emergency can blend together.
The wearer can inflate the skirt and transform it into a canoe in case of need. This is a great idea with the floods these days - but...could it mean that only girls deserve to be saved?
