You Can Leave Your Hat On



 collection is part call to eat more greens, part commentary on the ephemeral nature of fashion.

“Food equals fashion, what you eat and what you wear reveals who you are or want to be,” say Wintjes and Meursing. The edible garments also allude to the vulnerability of our ecosystem. “Every meal consists of choices which affect people, animals and environment,” the designers add. “This can also be said about fashion.”
Playful and strikingly beautiful, the collection brings a whole new meaning to the old adage, “you are what you eat.”

Style Bubble has a fun post about De Culinaire Werkplaats’ “Taste the Unwearables” edible fashion installation and menu created for fashion week. The designs are made from fruit and vegetable gelatin-based fabrics (no meat, they’re vegetarian.) Style Bubble says, “So we entered and immediately I went on a camera frenzy snapping everything and anything… fruit gelatin-based fabrics form neckpieces, dresses over chicken wire and dried fruit/vegetables make earrings, rings and bracelets. They’re even constructing an edible wedding dress this weekend that will be eaten in a communal feast.”
