Duck fashion charms Australian festival-goers

SYDNEY Fri Mar 21, 2008 3:59pm IST

SYDNEY (Reuters Life!) - Walks like a duck, talks like a duck, dresses like a duck -- it must be Australia's duck fashion show.

Behatted ducks in pink, green and yellow outfits waddled down the catwalk in the Pied Piper Duck Show at one of Australia's most famous annual country festivals.

Brian Harrington, who runs the show, believes his feathered models are just as talented as their human counterparts, and completely under-appreciated.

The 60-year-old has run the show for some 25 years and dresses his ducks according to the latest fashion trends for each event.

"I love that little duck. If she was a human, she'd be on top money," said Harrington.
