She rejected a below-the-knee uniform skirt and wanted a longer garment to conform with Islamic dress code, which calls for women to wear loose-fitting clothes that cover the entire body except the face, hands and feet.Really the name "uniform" says it all. One form. The idea is that having one form for all the employees helps the business in some way.

Bring in the giraffe hats for this one too.
