Whereas UK designers celebrating their Britishness might use tartan or tweed from Scotland, Argentinian Franc Fernandez turned to the abundant natural resources of his homeland when commissioned by Gaga to run up a frock for her appearance at the VMA’s. We ALL know what happened next (global outrage), but what, pray tell, does the future have in store for the protein-rich item of eveningwear? According to the designer, 'the dress will go through a process where it becomes a sort of 'jerky' and will be archived. Thank you.'
Hmmm, wonder if this will placate PETA?
