Clothing designers sometimes do go too far and sometimes big name designers have to eat a little crow.
Take the example of designer extraordinaire Karl Lagerfeld in 1994, with a slinky black dress made for Chanel’s seasonal line up.
Lagerfeld, feeling a little artsy, decided to embroider decorative Arabic writing on the front of the dress.
Unfortunately, he didn’t know that what he thought was a love poem was actually from the Muslim holy book, the Koran.
Uproar ensued in the Muslim community, and Lagerfeld issued an apology for his apparently honest mistake.
The dress was pulled from the line-up, and all pictures and video of the dress on the runway were destroyed.
