Flower Couture

The latest VISI magazine has these stunning images of dresses, created with flowers and other natural elements, by Franz Grabe, a South African florist. I really think that he is a floral artist rather than a florist.



(Couture by Franz Grabe Flower Couture, styling by Annemarie Meintjies & Klara van Wyngaarden, photography by Merwelene van der Merwe).
For more images of Grabe's flower couture go to his website (and click on Flower Couture, then on Mannequins).

These are crazy! Beautiful, though~ That last one could be a very uncomfortable but stunning wedding dress.

Anairam, those are SUPERB ! he's defintely more than a floral artist..that's for sure..
and the model is...wow !!

ps : to answer your question about my new header. it's a photo we made 3 years ago for a white homewear show. but then i couldn't get a whole collection altogether in time and i did a French pastry show instead ! this photo was supposed to be the invite for the fashion show. i love it because some of my best friends are in it and my darling boyfriend too..
:-)

Wow, these are incredible. So clever. SO beautiful. I've picked one from his website that I would like to wear...

If the model just had a haircut (look at het feet) why does she still sport so much hair?

Just curious ...

heather - Oh, you should have a look at his site and see some of the others!
esti - I think so too, but I can't imagine what is involved for the poor model!
m.c.i.s. - I am so glad that you like it! In my next life I would like to create photoshoots like this or your Last Supper scene. I think it must be amazing to be involved in something so creative - I already have lots of ideas!
kendalee - Yoo picked some beauties on your website! Now for the party!!
Le Husband - Focus on the Flowers, dear, and banish all these niggly analytical and philosophical thoughts from your head ... Now, repeat after me: Flowers ... Flowers ... Flowers ... Geddit? (Sigh)
