Food has been a major source of inspiration for many international design houses. In 1937, designer Elsa Schiaparelli showcased a Lobster dress that became quite a rage. Later, many designers such as Stuart Weitzman and Italian luxury fashion house Moschino came out with food-inspired collections. Chanel also launched a limited edition milk carton shaped minaudière which was a hot selling piece. And in Spring Summer 2017, Dolce & Gabbana showcased a pizza-pasta inspired collection.
The trend is becoming popular in India with fashionistas wearing their love for food on their sleeves. Need some delicious inspiration? Check out these looks that combine food and fashion in an appetising mix.
A tangy twist

Fizz is what it is
This is perfect to add some effervescence to your life. Model Ashanti Singh wears a faux leather skirt teamed with a fizzy drink printed T-shirt, layered with a faux fur shrug. Soft curls and deep oxblood lips complete her look. You can knot up the tee for a fun, funky spin.
