Fashion Illustrations Sketched with Real Flower Petals

Women’s fashion has often been compared to flowers, but what about using real flowers to create the design itself? Grace Ciao is making beautiful and delicate fashion illustrations using flower petals to “sketch” the pattern and print. Each soft and impermanent petal adds a flowing, scalloped form to her design, giving a result which appears fashionable and (surprise) even wearable. Very creative.

I’m having trouble getting over my awe at these incredibly hip photography/pattern remixes from Alana Dee Haynes. In each image she takes an already smart photograph and uses her talents with a pen to make them even better. Fields of bubble-like circles, webs of netting, and Insa-esq ribbons of horizontal lines fill the walls behind her subjects or jump right onto their skin. The contrast between detailed photograph and her bold linear additions is striking.
