Hair on the catwalk
Models pose in the body hair of celebrities in bizarre fashion show
February 26 2007
A GROUP of models have taken part in a bizarre show at London Fashion week, which involved wearing underwear made from the body hair of celebrities
Models gave up shaving their bodies for the show, called 'F*** off I'm a hairy woman', and wore lingerie made from the body hair of celebrities spun with raw silk.
Celebrities who donated hair included Welsh ex-drug baron Howard Marks and TV presenters Richard and Judy.
Designed by Tracy Moberly and organised by comedian Shazia Mirza, the show was filmed for a documentary for BBC3's Body Image season.
Mirza announced on television that she was looking for hairy women to take part in an event, but gave no indication that it included modeling for London Fashion Week.
The comedienne said: "The women had no idea what they might be modeling. When I told them they had to model lingerie made from body hair, I thought they might all leave."
The documentary, which will be aired in March, focuses on hairywomen and their attempts to cope with this problem, With Shazia Mirza believing she is the hairiest woman in Britain it is obvious where her inspiration comes from.
