From blooming flowers to a library of books, Sylvie Facon’s dresses bring enchanting storybooks to life. Based in France, she combines embroidery, beading, and painting to create one-of-a-kind garments that look like works of art.
Due to the level of detail in these magical gowns, it should come as no surprise that they can take hundreds of hours to complete. This is because Facon has to use her skills to embellish delicate fabrics such as tulle and silk with her illustrations. In one dress, for instance, a garden of purple flowers grows from the bodice, blooming into the straps that keep the dress in place. Another features a painting of a scenic place, which is made three-dimensional through stitching and beading.
Typically, Facon contains the most detailed elements of her designs to the bodice of the dress. However, she usually tries to connect the art that is placed there with the gown below. Oftentimes this means matching the colors, creating a pleasing transition from one section to another. This can be seen in her book-inspired garment, which makes it look like the model is wrapped in a library. Facon cleverly divides the skirt into panels. each one embellished in such a way that it looks like the spine of a book.
