Dresses Made from Crayola Crayons for Bloomingdales NYC

Crayons might be used for sketching dress ideas, but they’ve probably never been used to actually make dresses. Bloomingdale’s recently worked with six popular fashion designers who had created pieces for the 100% Bloomingdale’s Spring campaign. For this project however, they were given lots of Crayola crayons to create a fashionable statement for the window display at the iconic Bloomingdale’s store on 59th Street in Manhattan. In total, the designers used about 18,000 crayons to complete the work. Color us impressed!

Working on the project was Nanette Lapore who used “Unmellow Yellow” colored crayons to make a fashionable dress with 3D starbursts on the bustier. Torn by Ronny Kobo produced a bright red (or “Bittersweet”) dress using the cut ends of crayons as textural polkadots. And Parker created a “Jungle Green” jumper with the top made only from Crayola wrappers.

All of the pieces were photographed by Matthew Carasella and are now on display at Bloomingdale’s 59th Street store in New York City.
