Designer Shocks London Fashion Week With Dress Made With 3,000 Cow and Yak Teats

September 29, 2011

British designer Rachel Freire shocked attendees of her London Fashion Week runway presentation on Monday with a controversial dress made with 3,000 cow and yak teats. Freire fashioned the nipple-covered gown using cattle hide recovered from tanneries, according to the Daily Mail, and plans to show the piece at her upcoming Paris Fashion Week show.

Unsurprisingly, the public -- and animal rights activists -- have spoken out against Rachel Freire's titillating design. The designer defends her work as "recycling," saying, "The people criticizing are clearly clueless about the amount of leather wasted on a daily basis." What do you think of her dress?
