Designer creates outfits out of human hair

These garments, made from frizzy human hair, are an absolute wonder to look at. But would you wear them? The innovative fashion line is the brainchild of French designer Alix Bizet, who collected hair from hairdressers to create jackets and hats.

"Human hair is shaped to be a social indicator between individuals to communicate their status and cultural affiliations," Alix describes on her website. "Although hair's original state is characterized by richly diverse texture and colors, our idea of hair has been steadily standardized over the years by the cosmetics industry, media, and social conventions, making it akin to a uniform." Check out some of her creations below.
