In honor of the late designer, Alexander McQueen, Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi of the upcoming TWELV Magazine have recreated his ethereal winged gown with one made of wire, vinyl and 50,000 gummy bears.
The new publication, TWELV Magazine, has a fruity homage to late fashion designer Alexander McQueen gracing its first issue; editor-in-chief, Hissa Igarashi, along with fashion editor, Sayuri Marakumi have created a stunning, colorful and whopping 220 pound full-length gown clad completely with gummy bear candies.
According to Laughing Squid, the dress was created by shaping steel wire, which was then sheeted with vinyl. After that 50,000 gummy bears were thus glued on by hand one at a time in order to bring Marakumi and Igarashi's vision to life.
The gown's construction required three assistants solely for the purpose of maneuvering around the studio reports The Frisky. The garb was worn by model Jessica Pitti for the debut issue according to The Daily Mail.
Wearable food has been witnessed by the public before says International Business Times; one memorable case being Lady Gaga's meat dress worn at 2010's Video Music Awards aired on MTV.
