Flowers – the go-to decoration for all artists. So it’s not such a leap when couturiers, photographers, designers and florists take it a step further and make wearable art from flowers. These days you can even have a wedding dress specifically tailored to you as ‘Living Couture’. It sounds alluring, but it’s unclear whether one has to water the bride all day long. Better kept for catwalks and photo shoots, probably, but what genius the fruits of those labors produces! Exquisite renderings of the highest art at best, and something wondrous and cheerful at worst that enables us to see a garment in a new light. If only they could be preserved forever…but then, that’s the temporal and fragile nature of a flower.
So sit back in your front row seat and prepare to be amazed at the fashion show.
