Where Food and Fashion Meet

Do you have  favorite candy? You know, your “go to” candy, the old stand-by, the one that makes you smile? Mine, hands-down are Peanut M & M’s… I love them any time of day or night.  Akin to Green Eggs & Ham, I could eat them in a boat, with a goat, in the rain and on a train.  When I came across this dress, I knew I had to share…

This one-of-a-kind dress was created by Chicago based couture designer, Christina Liedtke, using 600 Peanut M&M wrappers, from which the 1,800 flowers used in the design were cut, handmade and applied to the 5 yards of silk charmeuse and silk shantung.  The design took Ms. Liedtke over 100 hours to create.  Incredible.

The wearable artwork depicts flowers in bloom. “The top of the dress displays the initial budding, while the middle portrays a “landscape of blooming vibrant poppies,” according to the designer. “Finally, the bottom of the dress expresses a collage of fully bloomed mature flowers,” she adds.

Would you wear this?
