REPULSIVE! A dress made from cow nipples

Yes, you read it right. No, it's not Lady Gaga attempting to make yet another fashion statement. After the raw meat dress, it's a 3,000 cattle nipple dress at the London Fashion Week that is making headlines for its repulsive 'raw' material.

Albeit the dress designed by British designer Rachel Freire is made from recycled patches of cattle hide, but it is repulsive to many nevertheless.

"It seems to me absolutely grotesque. I think most people will find it sickening and repulsive," Labour MP Kerry McCarthy told the People.

Interestingly, the dress is even headed for the Paris Fashion Week for its next showcase.

Friere defended her creation. "They really make you aware of the animal itself. I create fashion using material that would otherwise end up on the scrap heap. 'What I am doing is recycling. The people criticising are clearly clueless about the amount of leather wasted on a daily basis.'

Animal rights activists clearly aren't happy. "Isn’t the way we treat farmed animals bad enough without turning their dead bodies into a runway freakshow?" Justin Kerswell from animal rights organisation Viva told Daily Mail.
