Can you think of anything more udderly fabulous?
You won’t find this dress in your local H&M or Target anytime soon. It’s from the new book ReFashioned, by fashion designer and activist Sass Brown, which profiles more than 40 designers in the global recycled-fashion scene. Pieces like this one pose an artful, wearable commentary on how wasteful fashion (and in this case, meat) is.
Trash turns to treasure in miraculous ways in these pages: There’s a parka made from old parachutes; a chain mail-esque purse from soda can ring pulls; a linen jacket from vintage German flour sacks; and delicate jewelry from bike tires.
And yes, your favorite new item, designed by Rachel Friere:
One delicate and romantic piece is made entirely from discarded cow nipples.
