What’s made of 50,000 Gummy Bears and looks like an Alexander McQueen original?

50,000 gummy bears gave their lives in the name of art and tribute recently! But not to worry, it was all for a good cause. Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi have created a dress using these yummy gummies in honour of the late Alexander McQueen for the debut issue of TWELV Magazine. So how exactly do you get 50,000 gummy bears to stay in place for a dress? Well, you schedule three weeks of time to glue 50,000 sweets to a steel wire frame dress. You then of course have to find a model that doesn’t mind staying in a dress that probably weighs twice what she does… as the dress came in at 220 pounds!
