Dresses Made of Cow Nipples.
Last week, British fashion designer Rachel Freire unveiled her latest designs, dresses made almost entirely of cow and yak nipples.
To make her couture cow dresses, Freire went to a leather tannery in the UK and bought 3,000 discarded nipples. She had them sent through the tanning process and worked with them like leather. Some elements of her designs, such as the metal piercings, play on masochist nipple imagery and and other parts try to hide the fact that the dresses are made entirely of tanned teats.
Freire calls the project “recycled art” but animal lovers call it exploitation. Commenting on the controversy, UK based animal rights group Viva! asked “Isn’t the way we treat farmed animals bad enough without turning their dead bodies into a runway freak show?”
The designer doesn’t seem to mind the controversy, it helps her get exposure and she genuinely seems to like her designs. Freire told the press, “I love all 3,000 of my nipples.”
This is different than leather….how? both are gross
