89 Outrageously Bizarre Fashions

— September 4, 2008 — Unique
On Trendhunter.com, we believe that weird is wonderful, especially when it comes to fashion. We scour the web and the world to introduce our readers to all things offbeat and eccentric.

From Gucci to Heatherette, the following fashion articles belong to some of the most unwonted apparel and accessories we've seen, from gas mask fashion to dresses made of condoms.

I don't suggest adopting these looks yourself, but do seek inspiration for more feasible ways to apply more bohemian attributes to your own wardrobe.
