Fast food on fleek! A South Florida McDonald’s franchisee recently took the Golden Arches to a new fashionable level: the runway.The franchisee teamed up with students from the Miami International University of Art and Design to create unusual runway-ready designs made out of McDonald’s food packaging, to star in the Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach.
The quirky McCouture pieces would definitely have gotten the thumbs up of approval from Tim Gunn on Project Runway. Featured dresses, skirts, and crop tops were made out of what looked like the innards of a McDonald’s recycling bin.
In total, 4,600 McDonald’s sandwich wrappers, 1,770 fry boxes, 1,100 straws, 600 to-go bags, 500 sandwich boxes, 200 soft drink cups, 500 ketchup holders, and 100 McFlurry cups were used to create the 20 looks, one of which was a bridal gown for any Big Mac-loving brides out there.
The pieces will be displayed at the Miami International University of Art and Design.
