Even if i did have the skills to make this dress it would of never got to completetion and that is due to the fact that i have a seroius sweet tooth and i mean a serious serious sweet tooth. The onlt thing i would of done with 50,000 gummy bears is eat them and ultimately end up being sick and extreemly fat. Luckily enough though the designers Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi didn’t have the same problem. The dress was designed for Twelv Magazines debut issue and is inspired by Alexander McQueen:
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.
