This is a model walking during a Maria Sofia Bahlner fashion show from what I am told is the "Swedish School Of Textiles," during Mercedes-Benz Stockholm Fashion Week.
This is undoubtedly an example of avant-garde design, fashion as art, exploration of textile possibilities ... I have no doubt, it is artistically driven.
And yet, the only thing I can think about when I look at it is that she was playing the anthropomorphized mop from a straight-to-video Beauty And The Beast sequel at Disneyland and took her head off to have a Diet Coke.
P.S. After I posted this, I realized that the other outfit I considered including could be seen walking away, and someone commented on it, so you really need to see that one in all its glory. Thus, I have added it.
