Clerical Fasion on the runways??

When I read the article Gorgeous Georg's priestly chic inspires a new Versace show I was over come with laughter. Clerical garb making its way to the fashion run way??? That couldn't be right.

While I have always enjoyed the look of clerical garb, and applaud Holy Father Benedict's efforts to bring back some of the long lost papal fashions, I am some what unnerved by the idea of lay people wearing clerical styled clothes. I guess it's ok for some basic designs (like the cassock style coat from the Matrix, or even the collar style of the Marine's dress blues), but still, it's funny, and odd to think of the Vatican as inspiration for top lay designers.
