Would you wear a dress made from thousands of cow nipples? During London Fashion Week, designer Rachel Freire unveiled her latest haute couture creation: a dress made from 3,000 protruding cow nipples. Making use of the waste created by tanneries during the production of leather, the crafty designer saved these little nips from dumpster doom by turning them into a floor-length, flowery dress. While Rachel’s good intentions were surely on point, the dress has raised more than a few eyebrows, including that of politicians and animal-rights groups who have branded it everything from “sickening and repulsive,” to a “runaway freak show.”
