Story originally written and experienced: July 4th 2016
I’m not sure how I ended up there…
But I did.
There I was.
Wandering the acclaimed Chelsea Market on the west side of Manhattan like tourists and curious New Yorkers do, when I saw something down the main
that caught my eye
to the right.
“What…is…all of…that?” I asked my equally perplexed sister and friend without expecting a response.
“Dude, I don’t know. Should we go in?”
I was already inside.
I had to know.
I saw dresses made out of edible things and I needed to figured out why.
Then I saw the sign.
And it explained that this was a fashion exhibition consisting of 58 dresses and accessories—co-curated by Mr. Dominella, CEO of Italian fashion house Gattinoni, and Bonizza Giordani Aragno, a fashion history professor at the Instituto Europeo di Design, and organized by the Italian Trade Commission—symbolizing food and its similarity to fashion in the sense that food relies on plants and animals to exist and fashion relies on things like a cotton in the same way.
It was interesting.
Interesting enough for me to take pics and share them with you virally because, well, over sharing is what I do best:
The regal rigatoni dress:
The Popcorn Prom dress:
The fruit phenom:
The spaghetti carbonecklace.
The most in-tree-guing dress I had ever seen:
The up-Scale shoe:
The Ice cream ensemble:
The crowd peaser:
The cabbage coat:
The icing on the cake/beaded sweater:
The peppers and onions poncho:
Pizza party panache:
And the bread winner:
And there you have it. 14 bizarre pieces of clothing that made me hungry…for pizza, pasta and original art. Stay creative, my friends. I’ll always appreciate it.
