Rachel Freire makes couture from meat and leather by-products- as you do. Her Nippleocalpse collection is made from cow nipples. The nipples are collected from waste in an ethically operated tannery (I'm quoted the book here, ethically operated tannery sounds like an oxymoron to me). She made two dresses and used around 3000 nipple 'petals'.
So this dress was controversial and what not but as the designer said it is the same basic materials as what makes your shoes and handbags normally. If it was human nipples (as I initially thought it was for a brief second of insanity that I assume everyone else also experienced) I would understand . I wouldn't chose to wear myself but that's because it clearly the most unwearable dress in the world- it's underwear, a train, and a really tall hat. I mean what event would you be going to? Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?
