Sketching fashion illustrations is an art of its own, but Gracie Ciao has taken it a step further by involving fresh flower petals in her drawings. The 22 year-old from Singapore incorporates everything from carnations in dresses to lilies in pantsuits to create the beautiful floral fashion illustrations.
“They help me create prints which I otherwise couldn’t have thought of. I think petals work really well for illustration also because their delicacy and exquisiteness mimic those of a soft fabric.”
She says she started using petals purely by accident, when she noticed a red rose a boy had given her was dying. “I remembered how beautiful it used to be and wanted to ‘preserve’ this beauty. So I made fashion illustrations out of them,” she told BuzzFeed.
