Hello!

A custom-designed baby shower dress, featuring live gold fish in a bowl, has been slammed online, with claims of animal cruelty.

The incredibly detailed gown, was created and uploaded to Instagram by Ai L’amour, with the caption reading: ‘Under the Sea Baby Shower. ***NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED*** The fish were very much alive’.

The mermaid-themed gown includes a half fish bowl attached at the tummy, filled with water and real fish. The fashion design label makes unique, custom gowns that it claims will make ‘every milestone memorable’.

The gown’s designer, Yanedaila, took to Instagram to defend her creation.

“Art is just Art. It’s not about who loves it and who doesn’t. One thing I’m passionate about is bringing my clients’ visions to life SEAMLESSLY and I DID THAT! If you knew me fr you’d know how much passion is behind anything I put my heart to and my hands on.

“Thank you to those who can appreciate ART and an ARTIST. And baby this was a one and done, I told my client idc if someone offered me a gazillion dollars.”

But videos of the eye-catching gown attracted thousands of comments from people incensed at the use of live animals for fashion.

“Y’all got to stop using wildlife as a prop,” one person commented. “That fish is going to be dead by the end of the night and that’s bad juju for the baby.”

“What was the point of using live fish? You could’ve easily bought fake fish, and I know for a fact it would’ve been cheaper,” wrote another.

While others went as far as claiming it was animal abuse: “This is absolute abuse, animals are NOT toys or accessories. God this is awful.”

The mother-to-be who wore the gown also shared images and video from her baby shower on Instagram, with lots of supporters congratulating the stunning expecting mum.

  • It’s not as if that’s even a “standard” mermaid look.

  • It’s definitely not to my taste and I can’t see how anyone would like that.

  • What an ugly piece of clothing and to do it at the expense of a living creature makes it even worse.

  • Definitely animal cruelty. What, just because they’re goldfish they don’t matter? Seems senseless and silly to me.

  • Its a bit exploitative of the fish. They don’t wanna be couped up in there. Silly and uneccessary.

  • Art is art – but abit over the top and not necessary to be honest.

    Reply

  • Just horrible, tacky and cruel.

  • Oh dear, it really is awful to use animals, particularly in this way.

  • Not necessary. If she’d have not included the fish it could have been okay

    Reply

  • This seems unnecessarily over the top.

  • This oufit is absolutely ridiculous!! Everyone is trying to outdo each other and this person has taken it to the next ridiculous and totally inappropriate level!! The outfit doesn’t look good by any means and it is just so self indulgent! Those poor fish are suffocating in that idiotic outfit. It’s beyond stupid!! All this for a baby shower! Totally unacceptable and totally self indulgent!! Omg! What’s next??

  • Fish need oxygen? Being in a sealed container is certainly not good for them. Hence why when you buy fish you get them home out of the bag quickly once adjusted to the temp of their new tank. If it had a oxygen pump built in it or open top it would be a different story but this does seem cruel.
