Mango, Zara, Burberry, Loius Vitton and many more labels have always been rejoicing the display of their collection and made a remarkable position in the field of fashion industry. Setting up different themes and the collections display with every season change has been a treat to all the fans of designer collections.

Nowadays, many designers are not afraid to experiment with new innovative ideas. People are more open to try out and make their piece as creative as they can. Question is, did you ever wanted to experiment something of a very crazy yet innovative idea by the designers?

From Angelina’s luscious locks to Charlize’s corkscrew curls, everything has made a new style statement in the world of fashion. Lakme Fashion Week, Wills India Lifestyle and many other famous fashion shows have so much creativity and the remarkable collections?at display.

But this time, a young fashion designer from Germany city of Hanover has set new standards for the fashion industry. She has designed her clothes with a staple one can find easily in their fridge.

Anke Domaske, 28, based her creation on?QMilch, a fabric made from high concentrations of milk protein casein – the first ever man-made fibre produced without using chemicals.

We have always heard about eco-friendly clothing and clothes made by natural fabrics, especially by FabIndia. We have also seen lots of brands, designers, and fashion hubs that are promoting eco-friendly couture but have you ever heard of clothes with health benefits?

Well, the young designer from Germany has set apart all the limitations of designing and has come up with this great innovation. The designer wear made from milk and natural materials is not only ecological but also has health benefits. The amino acids in milk protein are anti-aging and anti-bacterial which helps in regulation of blood circulation and maintains body temperature.

You can also check out the MCC clothes featuring vibrant patterns and colours made up of the manmade fibres including QMilch. The designer wishes to make entire collection out of milk fibre. As for the cost, the unique designer piece is made out of 6 litres of milk costing about ?150 (AED760) to ?200 (AED1,000).

Despite being made of milk,?the designer insists that her clothes won?t decompose as when the the milk protein is heated, the molecules bind so hard that the protein does not break down. The fabric is also touted as washing friendly.

The milk protein also helps in makeup and can be used as a medicine because of its anti bacterial quality. Even some auto companies are using the fibre for car upholstery.

I definitely would not like to smell like milk wearing the dress no matter how stunning I look wearing it, so definitely a relief to know that this fabric doesn?t smell and is as smooth as silk. I am definitely convinced to grab this designer wear for myself and all set to look stunning. Are you?
