Stylish Fashion from Your Fridge + Market

Virginia del Giudice, photographer and co-owner of La Percalina, a vintage clothing store in Buenos Aires, sent us these utterly fab, seriously-stylish fashions made of fruits, vegetables and a few strokes of a brush. Gretchen Roehrs, who has been profiled in Harpers Bazaar, has some serious X-ray vision, to SEE the possibilities in the most ordinary vegetables and fruits.

We wish that getting dressed were as easy as opening our refrigerator and grabbing a leaf of chard or kale to wear (those pea harem pants are right up our alley). We’ve discovered that…

    This article is not correct. The original artist is not who you claimed it to be, it is Gretchen Roehrs

    This work is by Gretchen Roehrs. She was profiled in Harper’s Bazaar

    And has a lively instagram account that features her ongoing work with food and fashion. I hope you give her proper credit.
