    "Rural Wearable Art Showcase" Includes Clothing Made Of Grass, Duct Tape, And Cow Medication

    National Agricultural Fieldays is a massive agricultural trade show in Hamilton, New Zealand. Today, they put on an agriculture-themed fashion show where designers are tasked with creating "wearable art garments from materials found and / or used on farms or the land." Here's what it looked like.

    And just what I've always wanted: an outfit made up of multi-colored duct tape and tubes of cow medication.

    The tubes say DryClox DC, which is an anti-bacterial medication for cows.

    This drum is not only wearable, but also playable.

    It's made from plastic agricultural tubes, which I guess are good for farming.

    Aside from the horses, what does this have to do with farming?

    It reminds me of this iconic Maison Martin Margiela top, which is made of leather gloves.

    This ensemble consists of feathers, poles, pieces of metal, and burlap-like material.

    Points for trying to fit a whole farm into one outfit.
