Shock Frock: A Dress Made Out of 3,000 Cow Boobies

Rachel Friere’s Controversial Dress from  her SS12 Nippleocalypse Collection

British designer Rachel Friere has ruffled more than a few feathers over her latest creation: a dress made out of over 3,000 cow nipples.

The garment, which she plans to show at Paris fashion week, is a midriff baring pale pink bustier that seems to be covered in delicate flowers, that is, until you take a closer look.

Friere collected the nipples from the rubbish heaps at several British tanneries and proceeded to create dozens of remarkably detailed florets.

Although the workmanship may be impressive, and the thought is truly…uhmm…creative, the design is far from humane causing outrage amongst many animal advocacy groups.

With PETA denouncing the dress as “sickening and repulsive,” it would seem that Friere has her work cut out for her, but she doesn’t seem fazed.

Recently Friere spoke to British rag The Daily Mail about her new collection, aptly titled Nippleocalypse and the controversy surrounding her designs.

“To be called a fashion designer is odd. I am an artist in wolf’s clothing … What I am doing is recycling. The people criticizing are clearly clueless about the amount of leather wasted on a daily basis.”
