Project Runway is always encouraging its designers to use original materials (like fresh produce, shower curtains and auto parts) in their designs. Then again, sometimes Tim Gunn discourages unusual materials. Remember last season when Chris studded his runway collection with human hair? And just last week, Tim advised Kenley to steer clear of rope as an accessory, but he applauded her feather-inspired bridal gown. I also thought it was pure genius until Michael Kors called Kenley out on heavily borrowing her inspiration from designer Alexander McQueen’s fall 2008 collection show in Paris earlier this year. What do you think?
We've yet to see a designer incorporate dog hair into a collection, but there's always next season. Take a look at these trendsetters who are already sporting fashion designs made from their dogs' hair! You can even buy a book on the subject entitled: Knitting With Dog Hair: Better A Sweater From A Dog You Know and Love Than From A Sheep You'll Never Meet.
