A Guantanamo Bay-themed scarf from a fashion collection designed by Hannah Mitchell, a student at Massey University in New Zealand. The scarf is printed with distorted texts and the lyrics to Bob Dylan's "Masters of War." Lyrics sampler: "Let me ask you one question/Is your money that good/Will it buy you forgiveness/Do you think that it could/I think you will find/When your death takes its toll/All the money you made/Will never buy back your soul." (Via Pipeline.)
"It's a political continuum regarding the way media, in particular America's Fox News, distorts the truth behind cultural conflicts, civil wars and different situations around the world including Guantanamo Bay," Ms Mitchell said.
She has deliberately produced her garments from contrasting fabrics - free-flowing silk and restrictive leather - to make her point.
"Rather than producing a beautiful commercial collection, I am using fashion as a communication tool to say what I want to say."
