The 50,000 gummy bear dress.

For TWELV Magazine’s debut issue Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi created a dress entirely out of gummy bears paying homage to the late Alexander McQueen.

The dress took 3 weeks to complete and the dress was fitted to fit model Jessica Pitti, weighing in at around 220 pounds and took 3 people to maneuver it.

The Alexander McQueen dress that inspired the creation.

To create the dress steel wire was twisted into the shape of the dress and covered with vinyl. 50,000 gummy bears were then glued on by hand in a colourful pattern to resemble a Chevron rainbow.
