Gardening is about to become really fashionable. With our growing earthy, green, return to our roots (all puns intended) mentality continuing to swell, garden inspiration is starting to turn up everywhere. I have always taken garden design inspirations from fashion so I am happy to see fashion taking inspiration from gardens.
Burberry’s Spring 2009 line titled ‘Garden Girls’ is photographed in a greenhouse and designer Christoper Bailey says that the collection was inspired by his own Yorkshire garden and a great book called Garden People: The Photographs of Valerie Finnis, published by Thames & Hudson (you can click to buy it at amazon and see what it inspires from you).
I love the look of the shoot.
I can see myself wearing every bit of this outfit (jacket, dress, socks shoes and especially necklace)…though I would not do the hat with the dress…maybe with something a bit more casual.
I posted today about gardens and fashion over at ofifteen as part of my week of guest blogging there. I promised some more garden inspired fashion and here it is. From the minds of Niels van Eijk and Miriam van der Lubbe and found via Dana- Garden Design my new favorite Italian garden blog.
It like fashion nirvana to me…my favorite things coming together…Project Runway meets Florist…In fact, I think those project runways producers should make this one of the challenges…like the grocery store challenge…the floral challenge…. I wouldn’t be surprised to turn a corner at the Chelsea flower show and see someone dressed like this….
