Food and Fashion meet for a laugh at The Astor Center (NSFW)

I’m still catching up on the various shoots and events I’ve been juggling over the last month, so apologies for the delay. Just before our delay-laden trip last month, I shot a Gastronomica-sponsored Food and Fashion event at The Astor Center. The event began the Umami Art Festival and included a performance art piece called Robert Kushner and Friends Eat their Clothes. The distinctly odd show was brief and featured a fashion show made up of men and women (barely) dressed in foodstuff. Think an eggplant codpiece, a nori skirt and asparagus headwear.
I didn’t end up posting it on my Nightlife column as I didn’t want to test the posting guidelines, but if you’d like to see half naked artists dressed in vegetables and such, follow the jump and check out the extended Food Fashion set on Flickr.
