Designer Turns Real Flower Petals Into Fashion Illustrations

A designer from Singapore who hears the name Grace Ciao used real flower petals  to create a series of unique illustrations. Having as canvas a typical figure / model Ciao created unique and uber chic dresses from flowers.

Although she was interested in fashion design since she was a little girl, Ciao only recently came up with the idea of using flower petals in her work. The thought came to her when she wanted to preserve the beauty of a dying rose that she got from a boy. The discovery helped her realize the aesthetic and artistic advantages of this original use of petals.

They help me create prints which I otherwise couldn’t have thought of,” Ciao told Buzzfeed. “I think petals work really well for illustration also because their delicacy and exquisiteness mimic those of a soft fabric.
