Food Evokes High Fashion

Catherine Losing's Burberry-themed cake

UK-based photographer Catherine Losing has teamed up with British food stylist Iain Graham (featured in our New Food Styling report) to create a series of baked goods that represent signature colour palettes and prints from top fashion houses.

Designed specifically for American biannual food magazine Cherry Bombe's 'baked' issue, the collection includes a Burberry-themed cake featuring red and black plaid icing, and a Fendi-themed layer cake comprising blueberry, raspberry and vanilla cream. Meanwhile, the Chanel confection features quilted fruit leathers made to look like the iconic Chanel quilted handbag.

As previously explored by Stylus, food has become a popular medium for colour and material inspiration for a broad range of industries.
