Eat It Or Wear It, The Choice Is Yours!
For the creation of his Hunger Games photography, Ted Sabarese asked his models what food they were craving and then created completed clothing for them fashioned from the very food they craved.
In exploring people’s relationship with food, Ted reflected this through his photography. His idea “was to visually suggest an actual meal the model was craving by having them wear it.” (npr.org)
This project was shot in 2009, prior to Lady Gaga, and involved fifteen designers. Each outfit took hours to cook, create, and assemble.
Designer Amy Goodheart of SOTU productions was the mastermind behind the designs.
The artichoke gown took over six hours to complete during which time the model stood as each leaf was attached to her body. The gown was designed by Daniel Feld and Wesley Nault of Project Runway.
