Clever Collages Transform Everyday Objects Into Fashion-Forward Spreads

Leggy Object Arrangements by Martha Haversham

UK-based artist Martha Haversham finds the humorous potential in the most unlikely items. Her clever arrangements combine foliage, fruits and veggies, and common household objects with magazine cutouts of legs. The results are clever compositions you're sure to get a kick out of.

In these quirky collages, Haversham finds materials that resemble the silhouettes of everyday garments like dresses and pants, and then she places a pair of legs underneath. Even items that normally wouldn't be compared to clothing take on a fashionable appearance when she positions feet below the hem.

A crumpled brown leaf, for example, resembles a striking strapless gown. Likewise, a stalk of celery looks like slim-fitting green pants with a dramatic flare opening. Haversham even plays with motion and perspective in her arrangements by depicting chic figures walking, sitting, and leaping. Each composition doubles as a runway as the art is an unexpected fashion show.
