as a student at SAIC, i will be creating for the runway for the garfield park conservatory's 1st annual FLEUROTICA show featuring fashion and head wear utilizing or inspired by live fleura!
FRIDAY, 28 March 2008
"The botanical fashion show of the century treats guests to a variety of artistic floral interpretations in wraps and clothing, hats, parasols, corsages and more, all made from flowers, plants and leaves. The runway soiree is a collaborative event between the Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance and Chicago-area florists, and students from the Millinery Department of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Stunning floral arrays in Horticulture Hall, beautiful lighting, music, refreshments and professional photographers make it an affair to remember."
will post photos of the work in progress. i am concentrating on flowers/plants indigenous to chicago, the american waterlily and the wild leek.
