another amazing video by This Is It Collective, this time, their props completely made of cardboard and paper.
‘Taste the unwearables’ is a project of Eric Meursing and Marjolein Wintjes (de Culinaire Werkplaats, Amsterdam, the Netherlands) during the Amsterdam international fashion week, summer 2009. They designed especially for this occassion edible fashion accessories and for the grande finale a wedding dress made of edible rhubarb paper, and since then many more edible papers made from vegetables and fruit.
The paper created from the juice of blended plants is laid flat in a de-hyrdrator and later used for a variety of purposes.
Wintjes and Meuring have also used the paper in other projects, promoting the idea of sustainable fashion by creating clothing and accessories with the edible paper.
won’t it be nice, if a whole outfit is created by edible rice paper used by the white rabbit sweets?

in any case, here’s the video for the V Ave S.R. SS12 show:

nonetheless, these amazing one of a kind couture balloon dresses will definitely blow your mind away.
nothing like the cheesy balloon costumes you’ve seen in carnivals, these dresses by Rie Hosokai is an epitome of both craftsmanship and creative fashion.
though short lived, the silent drama produced by these latex beauties will definitely last a very long time.
