Mattijs van Bergen and Anouk Vogel - Flower Dress

Fashion designer Mattijs van Bergen and landscape architect Anouk Vogel in the Netherlands have come up with a very creative way of displaying flowers (editor's comment: unlike in the US, in the Netherlands flowers are very cheap and plentiful, so this might help with projects like this). Fashioned from strips of used bicycle inner-tubes, van Bergen and Vogel made a dress covered in tiny vases, each just large enough to hold a single bloom. The result is a living fabric that can change it’s appearance depending on the type of flowers used and how they’re positioned. When worn on its own, the frock possesses its own beauty, offering an empty canvas for a lifetime of shifting looks.

The dress was commissioned by the Architecture Centre of Amsterdam and designed to highlight the role of sustainable clothing in today’s fast-paced fashion industry.

I don't know about you, but I am done with Winter, especially after seeing these images.
