Portland Farmer Jacinda Martinez Turns Vegetables Into Edible Fashion

Some see her works as a celebration of eating beautiful organic food. Others compare her fashions to the fleeting nature of the actual fashion world, while Martinez would like her viewers to be inspired to think about where their fashion comes from, with the same desire they have for buying only from organic farms.

Artist and designer Jacinda Martinez began playing with her food to make bold and beautiful statements about slow fashion, in a beautiful series she calls Fashion in the Raw. Based on the coast of Maine, Martinez first combined her love of farming with art, when she was inspired to use the textural stalks of many of the plants she harvested daily in her art works. Made from stitched together amaranth, patches of leafy chard and sewn together broccoli stalks, her living creations appear as high fashion designs, captured in beautiful photographs to show how like fresh vegetables, fashion is here today and gone tomorrow.
