meat purse by nancy wu


I read that Nancy Wu is a design student, and I kind of figured as much. Why? Because there are two traits design students always seem to have. First, students are not afraid to go way out there with their experiments. Using a dried meat product as fabric for a purse- check. Second, design students are obsessed with popular icons. Twenty years ago when I was in school we all used Rambo and regan as our clownish icons. Today, we look to fashion brands such as Chanel.

As studentish as this purse is, I’ve come to realize that jerky texture is quite nice, and I thank miss Wu for opening my eyes to edible fashion beyond underwear made out of fruit rollups.
