British designer makes unusual use of sushi leaves

Japanese catering is certainly in vogue in the UK and many other countries around the world. A lot of people enjoy the fresh and exciting flavours and textures associated with this cuisine and so take advantage of sushi delivery services.

However, it seems that as well as eating the food, there are other uses for it too. Recently, Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design graduate George Nemsadze revealed a dress she has made from nori, which is a seaweed paper common in sushi dishes.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, the designer used 50 sheets of this green pressed seaweed and silk organza to make the garment and she incorporated geometric patterns and sheer panelling.

The dress was produced in collaboration with Pan-Asian restaurant Chino Latino to mark this year’s London Fashion Week.

Commenting on her unusual creation, Ms Nemsadze said: “The beautiful sheen and colour of the nori is very spring/summer 2013. We saw earth and jewel tones in spring/summer 2012 collections which rolled on through autumn and winter and into spring/summer 2013 in several collections.”

Meanwhile, talking about the capital’s fashion festival, Albert van der Westhuizen, Chino Latino Brand Manager for Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts, stated: “Fashion Week in London is a time to celebrate all that is beautiful, from designer creations and street fashion to city architecture and well-executed cuisine.”

He added: “We wanted to mark Fashion Week by commissioning a London designer to create a fusion piece where food meets fashion.”

When people want to tuck into sushi rather than wear it, they often take advantage of sushi delivery services. This means they can experience this varied and tasty food without having to master the art of creating it themselves. Instead, they can leave this up to experts in Japanese catering.
