Photo Essay

.Fashionable Flowers, Dedicated to My Mother.

.Fashionable Flower.

Fashionable Flowers

My Mother loved great beauty, especially in flowers and fashion. Her dream, was to be a designer.Sadly as a student, one of her teacher's told her to" find another profession". Despite, her disappointment in this remark, she always had an appreciation for flowers and beautiful fabrications.

The curve of a petal, the length of a stem, ruffled edges and fold of a leaf give thought and exemplify what a fashion designer can envision for their design.

The fabrication of couture and sensuality of a detailed garment exudes the glow and exuberance that comes from our flowers of great beauty. This musing can be translated even into the most minimalist of designer's, who are caught in the zeitgeist of today's fashion.

A hint of jasmine rising from the plunge of a neckline, clouds of mimosa spinning through the air when a woman turns around and walks away.

Evocative, provocative, pale, vibrant, flowers are forever the muse to whisk you away into a world of splendor and today's modernism.

Nature's beauty will always be in style. leh.

"Happy Holiday's" to all and thank you always for your support.
