Alexander McQueen-Inspired Dress Made of 50,000 Gummy Bears

Candy lovers will go just mad over this Alexander McQueen-inspired dress made out of gummy bears! The dress was created as a tribute to the late fashion designer and was used for the debut issue of Twelv magazine.

To build the design, stylists Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi twisted steel wire into the shape of a dress and covered it with vinyl. They then spent three weeks gluing on 50,000 pieces of the gummy candy in a rainbow gradient pattern. The final 220 pound ensemble was fitted exactly for model Jessica Pitti and required three people to move! I can only imagine the temptation to snack on the sweet treats as they dressed the model. Below you can also see the original Alexander McQueen dress that inspired the delicious design.

If you like the idea of clothing created out of food, you will just adore these creative, edible designs and outfits made entirely out of food.
