These incredible flower dresses were designed in collaboration by fashion designer Mattijs van Bergen and landscape architect Anouk Vogel—they were made for exhibition “Fashion & Architecture” (held from July 17th to September 11th, 2010) at the Amsterdam Centre for Architecture (ARCAM).


Notes about flower dresses (from Ecouterre):

Cleverly devised from recycled bicycle inner tubes and wool, the dress’s smocking-like surface is the result of myriad individual “vases” that can be filled with water. Depending on the type of flowers used and how they’re positioned, the appearance of the dress changes completely. Even when it’s worn on its own, the frock possesses its own innate beauty, offering an empty canvas for a lifetime of shifting looks.
