    Default The dress made from nori

    Lady Gaga caused a stir when she wore a dress made of meat to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, and now a British designer has taken a leaf out of the flamboyant singer’s book by designing a dress made of sushi.
    The gown, by Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design graduate George Nemsadze, is made from nori, the seaweed paper which is a staple in sushi.
    The designer used fifty sheets of vivid green pressed seaweed and silk organza for the creation and incorporated geometric patterning and sheer panelling.

    The dress was created in collaboration with Pan-Asian restaurant Chino Latino to mark London Fashion Week

    ‘The beautiful sheen and colour of the nori is very Spring/Summer 2013. We saw earth and jewel tones in Spring/Summer 2012 collections which rolled on through autumn and winter and into Spring/Summer 2013 in several collections,’ says Nemsadze.

    The dress was created in collaboration with Pan-Asian restaurant Chino Latino to mark London Fashion Week, which begins on September 14, and will be on display in the lobby of the dining venue at the Park Plaza Riverbank until September 18.

    ‘Fashion week in London is a time to celebrate all that is beautiful, from designer creations and street fashion to city architecture and well-executed cuisine,’ says Albert van der Westhuizen, Chino Latino Brand Manager for Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts.
    ‘We wanted to mark Fashion Week by commissioning a London designer to create a fusion piece where food meets fashion.’

    I blame Project Runway and all Tim Gunn's "Make It Work" cheerleading.

    I hope so! And don't forget the hair chopsticks and a pickled ginger necklace.

    if the camera pans out you'll see 50 feral cats trailing behind her, following the fish smell.

    Ew! I'm glad someone else went there, because I didn't want to. LOL

    Would love to know how that was made. Nori isn't the easiest material to work with. Is it glued to the sheer fabric?
