    As if women need more padding!

    Those crazy designers are at it again! Some of those outfits look as though someone raided our stash and used the concept of rag quilts.

    Those are really horrible! Some of them look like they came from the dumpster.

    that dress with the "flower" on the crotch - makes me wonder what kind of drugs the designers take.

    The fashion industry is nuts!
    I can't imagine anyone wearing those outfits; and paying through the nose for the privilege to do so.

    Gee if that's all it takes to be a top fashion designer & get rich peddling this crap then we all missed the boat. I mean really??? They call this fashion?? I think a 2 year old would do better. Heck most of us have worn out comfy clothes that would put this stuff to shame, LOL. Even an old worn out quilt the dog had for years would look better.

    I did see in the article that the designer does NOT expect anyone to wear those out fits. It was a show of "Art design". Heck I wouldn't even buy it if it was art. It's beyond ugly that's for sure!

    Ha. Too funny. But I'm thinking of my fragile bones and how that padding would be protective if I ever fell. Not attractive though

    Too funny, Miss Alyce!

    I don't know if my dogs would even lay on some of those outfits. I think they might try to bury them instead.

    if you read the article, you'll find that the designers are just having fun.
    they are "concept" designs that the designers do not expect anyone to actually buy or wear.

    i got a good laugh out of it all, so i guess they succeeded. lol

    although ... most of those shoes would provide a good workout. assuming you don't fall off and break your neck. lol lol lol

    There are really no words to describe those outfits.......women who look starved, skinny legs, "Bobby socks" with dress (ha,ha) shoes....why do we women allow men to show us in this degrading ugliness! Have you ever seen a male fashion show...either regular or weird as this one?

    I wonder if these designers just really hate women and want to make the ugly or what?

    They are all very ugly imho
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.

    What a horrible waste of fabric and leather (of course, there probably isn't any leather in those hideous shoes)!!!

    I do not post much anymore but, I just have to say how ridicules these are. One looks like an old chenille bedspread and others look like they collected someone's scraps

    If you read the article it states the designer does not expect any one to wear the clothes. It is all about being creative and it's art. Not to be in anyone's closet.
