And finally… Models wear wire, nuts, and bolts in construction material fashion show

A fashion show featuring clothes made from construction materials has taken place in the United States today.

The “Studs Struts and Stilettos” show in Rochester, Minnesota is a fundraiser for the Habitat for Humanity charity.

People in the local building industry have made clothes out of window screening, nuts, and bolts for the show. The building materials they use include lamp cords, paint brush bristles, and speaker wire. Expect designs like “Almost Chanel” and “Luna Butterfly” to parade down the runway in upstate New York.

Last year, there was a tightly belted ballerina skirt with weird inserts, and even a ruffly dress made with some sort of tubing, which the designer adorned with some kind of black electrical tape.

This year’s judges will be presenting the designers with awards in the following categories: Best Craftsmanship, Best Use of Construction Materials, Most Wearable, Bling Factor/Best Accessory, Best of Show, and Honourable Mention.
