Muslim models display burkini swimsuits at a shop in western Sydney on August 19, 2016.
Part bikini, part all-covering burqa, the burqini swimsuit has sparked huge controversy in France, but in Australia where the beach is a national obsession, it's seen as a symbol of inclusion, says its designer Aheda Zanetti. The light-weight, quick-drying two-piece swimsuit which covers the body and hair has been banned from French beaches by several mayors in recent weeks following deadly attacks linked to Islamic jihadists. / AFP / SAEED KHAN        (Photo credit should read SAEED KHAN/AFP/Getty Images)
