The fashion capital of the world has come up with a fresh design on rehabilitation -- convict couture.The San Vittore prison in Milan made room for a runway to show off clothes made by convicts.

The inmates, who don't have to wear prison uniforms, use a sewing room as part of a training program.

Backed by a local cooperative that helps women behind bars, they're launching their own brand named Jail Cats. It debuts next spring.
