STORY: These clothes are all made using traditional Mexican ingredients
Location: Mexico City, Mexico
It’s part of a fashion show put on by gastronomy students
from the University of the Cloister of Sor Juana
Students highlighted styles from diverse social groups
UNIVERSITY OF THE CLOISTER OF SOR JUANA, CARMEN LOPEZ, SAYING:
"Behind the design of each one of these costumes, there is research into the urban tribe, there is research into the designs, into the way they express themselves and say what they want to say. It's a challenge in many ways because of the study, the design, the research into what materials they will use, and how to combine the colours."
Each garment incorporates different edible elements
like dried chillies
GASTRONOMY STUDENT, GABRIEL RODRIGUEZ, SAYING:
"We used purple beans to make the jacket. Everything was embroidered by hand. We made the first filter, differentiated the beans by size, perforated them, cleaned them, varnished them, and hand-sew every single bean in the jacket."
