Food Fashion


Food as fashion is the concept behind Korean artist, Sung Yeon Ju's art series titled "Wearable Foods"; a project which she started two years ago creating beautiful works of art made of edible elements. From top, left to right: Red Cabbage, Bubble Gum #3, Lotus Root, Eggplant, Tomatoe #2, Banana, Spring Onion, White Radish, Winter Mushroom (orange), Bubble Gum #2, Winter Mushroom (white), Bread. See more of her incredible work at http://www.yeonju.me/

Thanks for sharing this, the dresses are so interesting. I used to do Art at school and for one project we did recycling and I made dresses out of bin bags and other materials, but food is a whole other level! I love the orange tomato one, it reminds me of Alexander McQueen's work.
Thanks for your lovely comments.

Trixie & Fifi said...

These dresses are ridiculously amazing! I can't believe she was able to make dresses out of bubblegum... and bread. Wouldn't the bread get moudly, as well as the food? It would be so gutting having the throw out the dresses when the food starts becoming off...

Emily said...

I can't believe this. Are these real dresses. I thought that they were sketches at first. I'm amazed!

Absolutely stunning. I wouldn't have recognised it as food in the first place.. just wondrous works of art

tanvii.com said...

Wow!!! Creativity has no boundaries. Some of them look like real dresses.

Cylia said...

wow. how can someone not be 'wow-ed' by this. thats so creative.. maybe not as wearable.. but maybe its a idea for him to try to make these designs into fabric-like-food.. so you can wear them?:p haha.. thanks for your comment again;)
