Fashion designer makes bridal line out of seagull wings, cat fur and human bones

Bridal line features creepy materials from animals and even humans.

But what you probably don’t dream of is a veil and headpiece made from a dead seagull or a necklace made from a human rib cage.  But apparently, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a market for that!

According to the Daily Mail, British designer Jess Eaton is using “ethically sourced” materials to create a line of bridal gowns and accessories. Translation—she’s basically crafting these pieces from roadkill. Eaton has used everything from cat fur, goose feather and a human ribcage to make her unusual designs.

Eaton says the materials (which she never pays for but gets for free) are sourced from roadkill and animals that have died from natural causes only, meaning she never harms animals for her creations. “I never, ever kill animals for our designs and we wouldn’t accept anything that has been killed for the purpose of turning it into a fashion item. What I do is take these animals, once their natural lives are over and give them an endless afterlife,” she tells the Daily Mail. “We eat the meat from animals every day and then we throw away their bones and fur - it's all just waste. But when I take these parts of a dead animal and turn them into beautiful pieces of clothing that can be enjoyed for many years to come, it makes people question their feelings about what's acceptable.”
