Homage to Alexander McQueen: Gummy Bear Dress

To launch the first edition of TWELV magazine, editor Hissa Igarashi worked with fashion assistant Sayuri Marakumi to recreate Alexander McQueen’s iconic ‘Parrot Dress’…with 50,000 gummy bears. The dress took 3 weeks to make and was first formed out of steel wire and covered with a sheet of vinyl. 50,000 gummy bears were then hand glued to create a rainbow pattern-the result is unbelievable.
