Though exorbitant prices have become an accepted norm in the fashion world, numbers keep climbing higher and higher. We're not the only ones daunted by obscene price-tags. Louise Roe, a British Vogue TV reporter, discussed the issue in The Daily Mail and asked some of London's reigning fashionable women for their take. Marigay McKee, Harrod's fashion director, told Roe "Three years ago, when I became fashion director, the most expensive dress on the shop floor was £4,000. Now it's between £40,000 and £50,000." After questioning the amount of money spent on ready to wear fashion, Roe was challenged to wear a dress made entirely of garbage bags. She smartly enlisted a third year fashion student to design something both wearable and stylish-- Which she wore to Milan fashion week. At one show she sat directly across from Anna Wintour, who pulled down her shades to look Roe's surprising outfit over. We don't know what Anna thought, but we think she looked great. We'll always admire someone with the confidence to pull off a garbage bag in front of some of the world's leading fashionistas. If you're brave, you can follow Louise's instructions and make your own. If you don't like your results, at least you won't feel bad about throwing them away! --BRITT ABOUTALEB
