Dresses Made Entirely From Leaves, Flowers

Vancouver-based artist Nicole Dextras has taken the floral trend in fashion and given it a literal spin.

As a statement against the fashion industry’s significant impact on the environment, Dextras created 28 organic dresses—each made entirely out of organic and locally-sourced leaves and flowers.

Beautifully designed and unexpectedly fashionable in some cases—one dress was inspired by one of Coco Chanel’s timeless designs—the dresses are part of the Earth Art Exhibition held in Vancouver, Canada.

Would you wear a dress that could also be used as compost?
