What do you get when you combine a drawing table and a dining table? Some really tasty-looking fashion. Mixing up stylish OOTDs with colorful veggies, this artsy Instagram account has us craving a new outfit and maybe a healthy snack. Creative director and fashion designer Gretchen Röehrs‘ Instagram takes “playing with your food” very seriously as she does a fashion sketch and then dresses the little figure in real food to make it appear like her subjects are wearing the trendiest fruits and veggies.
Having lived in New York City, Gretchen loved the modern style of New Yorkers. When she moved to San Francisco, she was instantly inspired by the famous California produce. She loved the way the West Coast cared more about their food than their clothing, so she came up with a way to combine East and West high fashion with organic veggies.
She uses everything from banana peels to lettuce as dresses and jumpsuits, all completely stylish and on trend. While we might not want to wear a banana peel, we love the idea of an edible blouse. Cotton candy shirt, anyone?
She’s hinted that these sketches are a 100-part series, so make sure you start following her STAT, and get ready for your Insta feed to be full of these cute culinary fashion illustrations all summer long.
