This isn’t necessarily food, but it is definitely a by product of it. What amazes me the most about this dress is that the shells are extremely delicate.
The process of removing the clams from the shell is a very delicate one, because the shells are very brittle and will break easily. It is astonishing how Alexander McQueen managed to strip and then varnish these shells..not to mention actually turning the shells into a dress. I give the man much credit and respect.. He truly was/is amazing.

You can see parts of the exhibit on this site as well. (which is were the pic. of the dress came from.) But pictures do not do his creations justice, especially if there is an opportunity to see them in person.
