Food hits the catwalk in Japan
Published on 14/03/2013

The Japanese have a reputation for coming up with weird and wonderful things, but how about this for an idea - edible clothing.

Top patissiers from the country have designed hats, bags, shoes and dresses for the annual Tokyo Sweets Collection catwalk show, making their designs literally good enough to eat.

Chefs were asked to produce an assortment of sweet fashion creations for models to wear on the 'cakewalk', and most chose to create edible headgear.

One of the designers Toshi Yoroizuka told ITN's Jeremy Barnes that he was usually bothered about his sweets tasting good, but for the cakewalk they needed to look the part too.

"For the fashion show it's not about cooking the macaroon for the best flavour, but about it looking beautiful, the intent is to create something that will inspire."

If you know someone with a sweet tooth who would love to get their hands on these works of art, why not treat them to a Regency Hamper instead?

We have a variety of hampers with luxurious sweet products to choose from - like award-winning chocolates or delicious preserves - sure to satisfy those with a hankering for sugar.
