Fashion & Nature: Russian Artist Compares Famous Designers’ Dresses With Nature

The world of fashion often draws heavily upon the natural world to drive its creativity, and is precisely this link that Russian artist Liliya Hudyakova has such a good eye for. Her Fashion & Nature photo series pairs accomplished fashion designers’ dresses and other pieces with the natural views that she imagines might have inspired them.

The resulting juxtapositions draw an undeniable link between the clothing we see on the runway (or even wear) and the world that inspired it. Indeed, some of the oldest known pieces of decorative clothing and jewelry imitate or incorporate nature as well.
