Crane sees the future of fashion as a time when materials and resources could be severely restricted because of their environmental impact, and she hopes edible clothing will provide an alternative.

Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress aside, for many of us, the idea of wearable food peaked with edible panties.  But, if you understand how intrinsically wasteful the fashion industry is, and you could have a dress that used fewer valuable resources to make you look good, would you wear a dress made of Gelatin?

Emily Crane, a student at London’s Kingston University, is betting that you would.

Crane sees the future of fashion as a time when materials and resources could be severely restricted because of their environmental impact, and she hopes edible clothing will provide an alternative.

Crane calls her creations Micro-Nutrient Couture, a blending of shelf-staples, chemistry and imagination, cooked up in her London kitchen.

“I experiment with materials that occur naturally when cooked up from edible ingredients,” Crane writes at her web site, “including gelatines, kappa carrageenan, agar-agar sea vegetable, water, natural flavor extracts, glycerine, food coloring and lusters. This is high-tech kitchen couture.”

Crane’s work is an exotic part of Kingston University’s display during London Fashion Week.  And the reviews have been positive. Enough so that Crane envisions a day when each of us can buy a kit to make our own edible outfits at home.

So can we look forward to a day when we’ll attend a dinner party where dessert might be served right off the hostess’ back?  “Why not?”, says Crane.  “Let the banquet begin.”
