These gorgeous dresses are part of an awesome series entitled Wearable Foods. Created by Korean artist Yeonju Sung, each of these beautiful garments was elaborately made of edible materials such as red peppers, eggplants, bananas, green onions, lotus roots, white radishes, tomatoes, and red cabbage. The bottom two pieces are made of bubble gum.
While one may categorically define Sung’s good-enough-to-eat collection as sculptural foodwear, it is just as much a photographic series. The artist explains, “I create my own world of reality by generating a completely different set of images that contradict the conventional notion of food and clothes. As time goes by, the food from my work do go through a progression of disappearance due to the nature of food and gets gradually changed into the hideous state fading its shape and color in the process…”
