Based on one of Alexander McQueen’s most iconic gowns, ‘The Parrot Dress’, this exquisitely tasty gummy bear dress was created to launch TWELV Magazine, a fashion, culture, music and art magazine. Of their incredible feat, Igarashi and assistant Marakumi said:

[We] wanted to create something very unique in honor of McQueen and his legacy. [We] thought of doing the homage with inspiration from this dress as it fit well with [the] idea of using the gummy bears; very colorful. The gummy bears serve as a unique, creative, and colorful way of expressing such an idea and emotion.

So, how did they do it? With a lot of patience, a steel frame covered with a sheet of vinyl, and three weeks of gluing gummy bears. Are you into fashion and using different materials as fabric? Check out Nikkaxxx's Lomographic Dress.
