We are drooling over this Alexander McQueen inspired frock made of 50,000 gummi bears by Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi for the debut of TWELV Magazine. Perfect for an outing to the opera – weighing in at approximately 220 lbs, this gown would even last through Der Ring des Nibelungen by Richard Wagner!
Ryan Novelline, a Boston-based alchemist, constructed this glamorous ball-gown from the pages and spines of that childhood favorite, Little Golden Books. This is fitting for the most discerning member of royalty; the billowing skirt consists of 22,000 square inches of fantasy and includes a train trailing in back. Here he documents the process from unboxing the volumes, to sewing them together with gilded thread, to modeling the evening dress.
