#MerkinMadness: Pubic Wigs Made a Big Splash at Fashion Week

Fun fact: Pubic wigs, or merkins, have been around since the 15th century when prostitutes would wear them to combat pubic lice or cover up signs of disease, such as syphilis. Nowadays, though, merkins are mainly used in Hollywood movies, when nudity in period pieces call for a, um, thicker bush than most actresses have today. 

But at South Korean designer Kaimin’s “Oriental Garden – Utopian” presentation at New York Fashion Week last Monday, merkins were BACK, baby, making a fabulous fashion statement and getting us all lathered up for their many stylistic possibilities.

via PAPER:

A spokesperson for Kaimin told BBC Three that the designer “chose to represent diversity, uniqueness, and acceptance of individuality with the life-giving human vagina — which was alluded to in the artistic videos projected during the show and was emphasized by the Mohawk on the runway.”
