Mother Nature Inspired Fashions

Posted in Alexander McQueen, Nature & Animal Inspired on January 26, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Nature has always been a fine inspirer for fashion designers and artists. Designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy from their fashion house “Rodarte” took the concept to a whole new level when they drew upon the graceful and fierce Siamese fighting fish for their latest fall/winter 2008 collection.

The delicate flowy dresses seemed to even have emulated the fragile silhouettes of the exotic fish as well as the vivid yet soothing colors of the marine beauty.

The stunning collection is infused with an extraordinary joie di vivir (The joy of living) that contagiously spills over to each and every design making every dress as special as if it were crafted by some ethereal force of nature itself.
