The weirdest runway fashions of 2012
Couture creations got more than a little crazy this past year.
We here at the Simply Chic blog aren’t above going a little “Simply Freak” sometimes, and the NY Daily News has a piece out that fits that mood perfectly. They’ve compiled a wild and wonderful collection of some of the kookiest creations to creep down a catwalk in the past year.
Check out their gallery and revel in weird designs whose wow factor is likely only surpassed by their price tags. Our freaky faves include a Baroque-style carved wooden dress (wouldn’t want to sit down in that), an oversized heart face mask by Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, and a “bejeweled bondage” gas mask from Chinese fashion house She Guang Hu. Some of the looks are gorgeously surreal – we’re digging the butterfly and autumn leaves accessories from Giambattista Valli and the stunning verdant vision from Lady Gaga fave Fyodor Golan.
Tell us: Is this fashion, performance art, silly designer indulgence, or all of the above?

avant-garde fashion is great!!! Most are just for show, but some daring people will wear them beside horrible celebs like Nick and Gag-a.
Who wants to see a boring fashion show like Michael Kors.
