A rather unusual new fashion trend in Asia has surfaced online today… and yes, it truly is bizarre.

Teens in Taiwan are stripping off their regularly clothing, posting photos of themselves wearing nothing but plastic shopping bags.


It's definitely the sort of trend that leaves little to the imagination, however, it's also one of the more straightforward fashion fads of recent years: stylish teens need only to pop their arms out of the handles, and hey presto! the look is complete.

Upon further inspection, SHEmazing! has observed that it seems to be particularly 'cool' to be seen flaunting a grocery bag from the US-based supermarket 7-eleven, as most teens are going for the green logo look. 

Incredibly affordable (it will set you back a mere 15c in this country) and certainly, ahem, unique, perhaps the trend setters took inspiration from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Australia earlier this year.

Then, designer Vanessa Moe sent models down the catwalk in masks and headpieces that looked remarkably like sheets of plastic blowing against their faces.

Whether it will catch on in this part of the world, we really can't tell. #Watchthisspace.
