Models rock runway in clothes, accessories made out of condoms

Designers used condoms to create fashion for a runway event in Charlotte, NC called Condom Couture. Each designer was given at least 1,000 non-lubricated condoms, and designs range from ballgowns to bathing suits to jewelry. The event, seen here in timelapsed video, ended with an auction of the couture with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood.
