More meat dresses

An email from the wonderful Morag in response to yesterday's piece about GaGa's meat dress not being entirely original:

in 1982 linder sterling made a dress out of chicken meat (she stressed it was leftovers from takeaways being a veggie) which she wore during a performance at the hacienda, partly as a protest about the venue showing soft porn. she ripped the skirt off (this was the year bucks fizz won eurovision) to reveal a massive dildo. Wonderful.

i suspect someone will have a medieval version with ruffs to best me on this but nevermind
Here are the remains of that very dress:

Nobody thought to gather up the scraps to put in a museum, as far as I know.
