Milk fibre dresses a hit with celebs

A YOUNG fashion designer from the German city of Hanover is revolutionising 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 fibre produced entirely without chemicals.

"It feels like silk and it doesn't smell - you can wash it just like anything else," Domaske told Reuters.

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-ageing and can help regulate both blood circulation and body temperature.

Domaske's fashion label Mademoiselle Chi Chi - a favourite among the likes of Mischa Barton and Ashlee Simpson - has now started weaving the milk fibre into its collection.
