Over the years, we’ve seen dresses made out of unique materials including LEGO bricks, balloons, condoms and even milk. So it’s not completely surprising to see fashion designers turning to crayons to find inspiration.

These amazing, one-of-a-kind masterpieces are the result of a partnership between Crayola and Bloomingdales. The companies reached out to a number of popular fashion designers to have them create designs, made from the brightly colored crayons, for a dramatic spring window display. Each of the designers drew inspiration from one of the crayon brand’s classic colors.

The clothing sculptures are currently on display in the windows at Bloomingdales in New York City. But if you can’t make it to NYC to check them out, here are some fabulous shots by photographer Matthew Carasella.
