Edible Fashion: Check Out These McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Moncler Frocks Made Out of Lettuce, Sardines and More

Photographer Fulvio Bonavia's shoot 'Food Dresses' for Garage Magazine (which we saw on Fashion Copious) brings together two of our favorite things: Food. And Dresses. (Duh). More specifically, the shoot features dresses by Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Moncler, which were created by an artful (and painstakingly arranged) array of foodstuffs including lettuce, oranges, anchovies and walnuts.

Photographer Fulvio Bonavia's shoot 'Food Dresses' for Garage Magazine is out (we saw on Fashion Copious) and brings together two of our favorite things: Food and Fashion (duh). The shoot features fall dresses from Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Moncler, recreated (and painstakingly arranged) in lettuce, oranges, anchovies and walnuts.

Fulvio, who has got quite the thing for photographing stuff made from food--dude devoted a whole book to it, called A Matter of Taste--talked Stockland Martel Art blog about the project and working with Giovanna Battaglia, the stylist for the shoot. "It was a really good collaboration, as we were very much on the same page with all the concepts," he told the blog. "[Giovanna] proposed we do a different look for each different fashion brand, with an interesting structure and textures, and I worked on how to realize these concepts and decide which food would be the right choice."

“I hope nobody reads our e-mails back and forth,” Ms. Battaglia told the New York Times earlier this summer. “We were writing things like, ‘yes, Prada is an orange, that’s genius! And Moncler is a fish!’”

And now you can see all their hard work come to fruition. Looks pretty good right? Though we think we'll pass on the fishy Moncler dress...
