pottery as art At the 2011 London Fashion Week, British designer Rachel Freire displayed her latest design, a cow-nipple dress that is made out of 3,000 cow and yak nipples (90 % cow and 10 percent yak). This kind of dress caused such a fashion scandal along with the spring-summer 2012 'Nippleocalypse' variety of this 32-year-old designer met with harsh criticism. 'It appears to me absolutely grotesque.' Labour MP Kerry McCarthy said. 'I think most of the people will quickly realize it sickening and repulsive.' But Freire defended her provocative piece, saying, 'I create fashion using material that will otherwise end up on the scrap heap. What I am doing is recycling. The people criticizing are clearly clueless concerning the volume of leather wasted on a regular basis.'
