When a designer sits down to create, he or she usually has a variety of tools on hand, but flowers aren't typically one of them.
That's where Grace Ciao differs from the rest of her peers in the fashion industry. While the Singapore-based fashion designer does sketch just as others do, she went a step further with her creative visions of flowing gowns and added a bit of nature. And with 22,000 followers on Instagram and counting, people are noticing her work.
Ciao uses everything from lilies and roses to even lettuce to create fabulous frocks in brilliant colors. She teaches classes for both beginners and intermediates in Singapore. She promises students that they will use "a variety of mediums" for the latter class, so perhaps if you enroll, you'll be lucky enough to make some flower designs yourself.
Ciao says on her Facebook page that prints are coming soon, so if you're simply enchanted with her work, perhaps soon you can embellish your own with a bit of its cheery style.
