Incredible Edible Dresses!

There is always something to make a person excited no matter what age you are.  There is always something new to surprise you no matter how long you've lived. I've seen clothes designing challenges on Project Runway where the contestants had to make a garment  using plants and gardening equipment, and in another season, the contestants used car parts for their designs.  The contestants made lovely designs overall.  Well, I've found a designer that's made beautiful dresses using vegetables and fruit. 

Sung Yeon Ju has a collection called Wearable Foods.  Just look at his incredible talent.  I'm very excited about clothing made from unconventional materials.

The blue dress was made using red cabbage and gum.  The white dress was made using radishes.  What a talent!  These "dresses" are absolutely beautiful!  You have to check the website above for more edible dresses from this designer.

Another incredible outfit  (it's made with conventional material):

This spectacular dress is colorful and detailed; the time to construct this dress must have taken many hours (like the edible dresses). This was a part of Toshikazu's fall/winter 2009/10 collection shown at Paris Fashion Week.  Toshikazu Iwaya is a Japanese designer whose collections I will be looking for in the future.

Till next blog!
