Food Fashion – Edible Clothes Anyone?

One of the Facebook groups I’m a member of is UK students and trainee bakers (ABST). People often post information about competitions, job opportunities or programs related to our industry. This week someone posted a photo of a model wearing an outfit entirely made of bread. I thought it was pretty awesome and took to Google to look up more items of edible clothing and these are the best of what I’ve found:

I love it. Being made of bread I took an instant liking to it. I don’t know that I could pull it off but the model wears it well.

This was made by the Ukrainian pastry chef Valentyn Shtefano for his bride’s wedding dress. This is taking the croquembouche to the next level!

Made by the German bakery group Lambertz

Well I think it looks really good, however the second it got warm, your outfit would start to melt on you, not a good look.

I think this dress is beautiful and could be recreated and sold as a dress made of – dare I say it, a material such as silk.

This beautiful dress created by the artist Sung Yeonju is made of egg-plant (aubergine) as part of her “wearable food” collection.

  1. Awesome. How would you like to be the model for those designs? And make it work on the runway? Now there is a challenge! I too liked the green dress; were those artichoke leaves?

  2. Wow, I love this post! These pics are so cool. I wonder if they can actually move once they’re in these dresses though… and if the clothes might temp the models to actually eat (their dresses)… this could be problematic too! Great post.

  3. Pretty amazing! I, too, am a bread lover so I might find myself in dire straits if I got hungry during the day and started noshing. 🙂 The pictures are beautiful. Thanks for stopping by my blog, BTW, and liking my post on cupcakes.

  4. This is great! My kids like to make “vegetable people” this could start a whole new obsession…
    Thanks for checking out my blog. I love to bake too so I will surely find a lot to learn here. I thought the green mother’s day cupcakes were particularly beautiful.
