Every Outfit on This Insane Runway Is Made of McDonald's Packaging
McDonald's is taking the phrase "you are what you eat" to a whole new level.
The fast food restaurant partnered with students at the Miami International University of Art and Design to create a collection of clothes made entirely from McDonald's packaging. The creations hit the runway on Thursday at Miami Swim Week, and they truly looked good enough to eat.
The 20-piece collection took more than 7,000 McDonald's sandwich wrappers and 2,900 sandwich boxes to make. At the end of the show, student designer Pablo Machado Palomeque ended up walking away with a $5,000 scholarship for his design, the "McDCouture Angel," which featured 7,000 butterflies made from 1,100 sandwich wrappers.
If you're feeling inspired by the fast food couture, don't fret. While the McDCouture show was a runway-only event, McDonald's just unveiled a fashion forward McDelivery Collection on Thursday that can fill the need perfectly. In fact, if you order McDelivery (which is basically delivery for McDonald's through their partner UberEats) on July 26, they'll even send you some of the clothes for free if you're near a participating restaurant. How's that for a win-win?
