For the debut issue of Twelv, a fashion magazine, designers Hissa Igarashi and Sayuri Marakumi created a rainbow-hued dressinspired by one of Alexander McQueen’s more extravagant creations. And while the original dress was made from floaty wisps of chiffon and exotic bird feathers, this one was made of… hold-your-breath… gummy bears!

The gummy bear dress has been created with 50,000 pieces, stuck on to a vinyl sheet and weighs about 220 pounds! The most interesting part is that they were stuck on individually by hand and three people were needed to carry it around at the shoot!
