Is anyone surprised? Of course the Shenkar College of design removed the photo of the dress, another submission to savages. Terrorism and death threats pay.
Back in 1994, Karl Lagerfeld designed a quran dress (long before September 11th, the London bombings, Madrid and the tens of thousands of other attacks since 911). Claude Eliette, the chief executive of French haute couture house Chanel, went to the Grand Mosque of Paris to see Dalil Boubakeur, the mosque’s imam, and apologised for putting a verse of the Koran across the chest of Claudia Schiffer when she modelled a new evening dress in Paris (above).
“Mr Eliette promised Mr Boubakeur that the three offending dresses would be burned. The fashion house, he said, had never intended ‘to commit a sacrilege or to offend the Muslim community.'”

A picture of a model wearing the dress was upladed to Shenkar’s Facebook page with the title – “Cat on a hot tin roof, the Arab Spring version.”
Young Arabs who identified themselves as members of the northern branch of the Islamic movement were infuriated by the dress and demanded an apology for what they said was an insult to their holy book. The designer’s family said that they had no intention of insulting the Quran or the feelings of Muslims, and that the work was simply a project carried out as part of the designer’s studies.
The picture was removed from the college’s Facebook page.
Shenkar College said in response: “Shenkar supports full academic and artistic freedom and denounces all forms of violence and intolerance. The photo was removed from the college’s Facebook page at the request of the student and her family, after she received death threats. The matter is now in the hands of the police.”
