The last time meat made its way onto the global fashion stage was on Lady Gaga at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.

But the boundaries have been pushed again, this time on the catwalk at the Fieldays' Ag Art Wear show.

The outfit in question was designed to highlight the rising price of beef in New Zealand, which the artist claimed has climbed a 50 per cent since 1997. 

It was made from dehydrated raw beef crafted to feature a rib cage-style dress, with a cow's skull for a headpiece, and hooves. 

Other garments on the catwalk this morning were made from No 8 wire, ear tags and hessian sacks. 

The awards are judged in three categories:- avant garde, designer traditional and the new classroom couture category, which has been designed to encourage secondary students to get creative. 

The total prize pool is $12,000.
