These days, thanks to social media, anyone with a passion is able to showcase their creativity in unique and awesome ways. And if that passion just so happens to be creating amazing fashions from everyday food items? Well there’s a market for that too.
If you haven’t heard of Edgar Artis, he’s the Paris-based fashion designer behind pizza dresses, lettuce frocks and hamburger gowns. He’s been sharing these concoctions on his Instagram page for a while now, gaining more than 718,000 followers along the way. If you’ve seen some of his designs, it’s not hard to understand why.
How about now?
You have to admit his designs are nuts. Trail(mix) blazing, even.
So how does Artis do it, you wonder?
First he starts by sketching a model on a blank sheet of paper, leaving space for where he imagines the actual outfit going. Then it’s all bets off as he adds a variety of ingredients — from radicchio or leeks to watermelon or dragonfruit to create the actual outfits.
These creations take the artist anywhere from three-to-eight hours to complete and — amazingly — he doesn’t just stop at food. He’s also been known to use everyday household items to create amazing outfits that we’d kill to see in real life.
Or, sometimes Artis will leave a cutout sillouhette of where the outfit itself should go, and then photograph it against a cool backdrop for a really unique effect.
With so many gorgeous outfits in this artist’s mind, we guess our next question is when will he be making his red-carpet debut? We know tons of people who would kill to wear clothes like this, edible or not.
So long as he sticks to cooked meat, of course. (Sorry Lady Gaga.)
Keep these designs coming, Artis. We’re dying to see more.
