From rags to riches?
High fashion Chinese style is - sackcloth.
This woman, named only as Miss Chen from Shaanxi province, designed the clothes as a statement, saying she wants people to return to a "simple life."
But local media reported that her alternative clothes had little impact on passers-by when she strutted her stuff in the dress made from old flour bags.
One man said; "I felt sorry for her. I just thought she couldn't afford a proper dress."
