A laborer carries jute from boats in Gauripur in the Dhubri district of Assam, India, on September 3, 2012. Jute cultivation is widely practiced in Assam. Despite floods affecting about 10,000 hectares of agricultural land, Assam expects to produce about 300,000 bales of jute in 2012, compared to 200,000 bales last year, according to the state agriculture department.

The context could barely be more different, but this picture reminded me of some of the more outlandish outfits on display at Madrid Fashion Week, as featured on PhotoBlog a few days ago.
