It took a ton of planning, but I finally shot my personal project “Hunger Pains” on January 25th. Unfathomable designs by Ami Goodheart of SOTU Productions (and her incredible staff)? Check. Just the right talent? Check. A studio full of food and 16 hours to make it happen? Check.
I’ve had a fascination, lately, with the relationship between people and what they eat. The models wore clothes made entirely of real food that depict a meal each person was craving. It was a wild process creating the outfits. About 15 people were involved and each look took hours to assemble. The artichoke heart gown was designed by Daniel Feld and Wesley Nault of Project Runway fame and took over 6 hours to finish (the model stood the entire time while they attached each individual leaf).
Big thanks to all involved. Check out the a behind-the-scenes video below. Pics to follow.
