Hairy Fashion

A WOMAN has woven an entire wardrobe of clothes out of her own hair, after growing it for more than 50 years.
Ioana Cioanca, 71, has created everything from a hat to a skirt from her 40-inch-long tresses.She told the Austrian Times. “I have nine items – a hat, a shawl, a skirt, a blouse, a raincoat, a purse, a handbag and a pair of gloves.“They are all slightly different colours because of course I went grey over the years.”The 71-year-old from Bistrita Nasaud, Romania, added: “I did this because I wanted to show how practical human hair is. "The clothes are warm and comfortable – and the materials are free.”
