This week on Floral Media we are taking a look at the fashion designer Dries van Noten's latest fashion show in Paris. It's his S/S 2017 Ready-To Wear collection called Say It With Flowers.
Many of the clothes has flower prints as well as lots of contrast. He says: " We just started to chop up garments and throw flower prints on. Everything contrasting!"
The catwalk that the models walk down has large installations of frozen blocks of ice with "towers of flowers". They contain massive botanical arrangements - similar to the ones you might see in Dutch Old Masters paintings. Here the flowers are frozen in blocks of melting ice.
The installations are created by the Japanese floral artist and botanical sculptor Azuma Makoto. Here is a link to his website. It has some stunning close-ups of the flowers.
I hope you enjoyed this video with some rather unusual flower arrangements used in a very creative way.
Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer - I will be back on Wednesday with some more floral delights. Hope to see you then.
