Fashionable Clothes Made out of Bread

(YouTube Link)

Like many products appearing on high fashion runways, these one-of-a-kind products are not very practical -- other than the fact that they can be eaten. The French-language video above shows many of the items available at a 2004 exhibition by fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier. At the time, Suzy Menkes wrote in The New York Times:

Surrounded by crinolines and corset dresses sculpted out of wickerwork (think bread basket) and stuffed with round and shapely loaves, the French designer emphasized the finesse it had taken to create the show at the Cartier Foundation for contemporary art (until Oct. 10). The exhibition includes a sculpted dress with two brioches to create Gaultier's famous pointed-bosom gown for Madonna and a Kelly bag, lovingly shaped and baked, to celebrate his current role as designer for Hermès. Add umbrellas, hats and the signature matelot stripes re-created with inky dye.
