One designer has made his marks in the fashion industry by creating a flower like dress during this year’s Paris Fashion Week Autumn-Winter Collection 2010-2011. Inspired by Christian Dior Haute Couture collection, the iconic “Tulip Line”, Galliano said “I wanted to bring a bold new bloom into the salon and let the color, texture and structure of flowers inspire a new beauty and create the contemporary Ligne Florale

Galliano’s collections of flowery dress represent a fragrant mix of abstraction and a modern femininity color. The floral shape structure is supported by top of the art cutting technique that mix silk with natural spectrum of color that makes these dresses look marvelous, beautiful and yet elegant.

Galliano used different forms of flowers for this collection including: Parrot Tulops, Crocuses, Orchids, Pansies, Poppies and Sweet peas.

Enviroment friendly dress

Going green has become very famous notion in today’s world. The idea for this is to save the planet by creating things that are harmless to the environment, especially the plants.

Recently, I saw another going-green action in the fashion industry! Maybe it sounds new in this industry but believe it or not, a Italian designer Linda Schailon made the craziest idea by creating a dress covered with live plant. The Sprinkle Dress features a wire skirt that covers all below part of the dress with the plants attached to it.

A crazy but funny creation. It reminds people how important it is to conserve plants to save the planet. A very interesting innovation.

Give me your thoughts!
