The burqa is a garment that evokes strong reactions across the world. Some see it as oppressive, and it has been banned in some countries. Artist and designer Behnaz Babazadeh decided to challenge western perception and create dialogue, by reinventing the burqa using... candy. Behnaz's edible burqas are both beautiful and thought-provoking.

Behnaz Babazadeh is Afghan-American artist and designer whose work spanning photography, sculpture and film, challenges the western preconceptions of women in burqas with a series of works made from materials found in the candy aisle. With her background in branding, interaction and user experience design, Behnaz creates experiential exhibits that evoke new ways of looking at a traditional garment.
