Singapore-based artist Grace Ciao creates fashion illustrations that combine hand-drawn lines and watercolor brushstrokes with real, three-dimensional flowers. Each delicate petal mimics soft fabric, resulting is pretty dress designs informed by the plant’s natural structure. Ciao explains, “I never know what outfits my flowers are going to blossom into until the last petal fits into place!” Ciao started using flowers by accident, when she noticed a wilting rose on her desk.
