Pret a Porter: Pret a Manger
Back in the late seventies - I made a collection of edible fashion, provoked by the diet obssession and feminist movements - such as fat is a female issue.
Hostess Toast Dress, Bangers n Mash wig ....
Took a cake icing course and bread baking lessons with the Master Baker ( Tim - where are you now ? ) who helped me bake the perfect meringue dress for the Russell Harty Show 1981.
The Prete a Manger fashion show was commentated by Mark Almond, and featured giant sex-doll jellies ( which were concentrated gelatine, left to set on the roof - as there was no fridge large enough) I had made glazed ceramic moulds which were heavy, so I used ABS.
Art directed several commercials for Tony Kaye, then directed a dummy McEwans Lagar commercial using the “Cress Transplantation Kit"
strapline: “ Don’t give me that - give me McEwans! "
