I first became aware of this impressive image via Cherry Coloured» surrealist couture. It is from the Alexander McQueen 2009 collection. The story conjured up by this single photograph of a woman muzzled in her clothing, in her culture, in the very fact that she was born female, greatly affected me. I don't know what McQueen had in mind when he presented this but it was genious. It speaks volumes. Right now my friend's blog has been blocked. Her words no longer will be viewed by the many women that read her in her adoptive land. She is posting sight unseen and only us in the west will be able to see her and post to her blog, she cannot see her own blog. A great loss for the women of KSA. Stop over to susie's big adventure: Caution: This Blog Banned in Saudi Arabia and leave her some encouraging words.
