Down the Garden Path

"Happiness is the secret to all beauty. 
There is no beauty that is attractive without happiness." -Christian Dior

Fall 2010 Christian Dior Couture Collection will forever be written in history as my favorite collection.  
During that time, coming up to the show, I was having visions even dreams of incorporating the world of flowers into fashion and then on July 5, VOILA, Galliano had read my mind!! No I'm not a fashion designer, so I wasn't too dissapointed, since obviously he took it to a whole new level of layers upon layers of amazingly crafted tulle, silk and organza. To say the collection was a masterpiece is a massive peice of understatment for me, its genius!
My love of flowers has been with me all my life, I have my great grandmother and great uncle to thank as they were both florists and avid gardeners. I even got the opporunity to work at a florist last year and had the time of my life learning about all the different types of flowers, their names and how to arrange them. So when it was time to come up with inspiration for this project I knew I wanted to pay homage to this collection- from the dresses, to the hair, to even the make-up. Come along with me as my inspiration from Dior, Irving Penn and Nick Knight take us down the beauitful garden path of color, form and texture...
