German makes clothes from milk

BERLIN (Reuters) — A young fashion designer from the German city of Hanover is revolutionizing high fashion by designing clothes with a staple she can find in her fridge — milk.

Anke Domaske, 28, has developed a fabric called QMilch made from high concentrations of the milk protein casein -- the first man-made fiber produced entirely without chemicals. "It feels like silk and it doesn't smell — you can wash it just like anything else," Domaske said.

Made from all natural materials, the QMilch fabric is ecological but also has many health benefits, said Domaske, who also said the amino acids in the protein are antibacterial, anti-aging and can help regulate both blood circulation and body temperature.

Milk fabric has been around since the 1930s but was always produced in unecological ways that used a lot of chemicals. Unlike earlier prototypes, QMilch is made almost entirely from casein. "We have developed an all-natural fiber consisting of a very high concentration of casein, with a few other natural ingredients – and in only two years," the former microbiology student Domaske said.

Domaske said it would take about six liters of milk to produce an entire dress, which costs about $200. Luckily, for that kind of money, the clothes don't come with an expiry date — during the heating process, the molecules bind in such a way that the protein won't decompose. Due to its anti-bacterial qualities, the milk fiber can also be used in medicine and makeup. Even some auto companies have looked into using the fiber for car upholstery.



Sunday morning

And by the way, I'm still wondering how did the chicken get there...
Was it stolen to feed the tiger?

But did you know that the chicken won Best Supporting Actor of the 11th Annual Alternative Oscars?

Ed Helms has been quoted saying he will make sure that a chicken will appear in all of his future movies.

Chapeau l'Artiste.




Let me introduce you to Aritzia, the new favorite shopping spot of a lot of New Yorkers...

Their NY new flagship location officially opened on June 15, 2011 in Soho. It's expected that online shopping will be offered on aritzia.com within the year.

Aritzia tries to maintain a strong cultural link through its featured artist of the month (artwork as seen on their shopping bags). Location designs are also unique, with an artistic and modern flair.

Since 2005, the company has had explosive growth, doubling their locations.

Their stores use low energy lighting, earth-friendly paint and wood-free shopping bags.
