Edible Fashion in Mexico City

Ganda Suthivarakom

Two of the things I love most about Mexico City are its food (of course) and how its citizens embrace the surreal. Both came together last weekend at .modales, an alternative fashion show I attended at the Museo Universitario del Chopo. Of the 25 pieces featured, three artists' creations used food wares — cotton candy, paper beer cups, and frilly, fresh lettuce — to express feminine identity. —Ganda Suthivarakom
