This leaf fashion project by Tang Chiew Ling is a must see for lovers of fashion and nature. 'Fashion in Leaves' re-purposes leaves straight from the garden to create new dresses for iconic photos. Three slim green leaves dress Audrey Hepburn. In a similar style, the artist might use one leaf or fifty to redefine eco fashion. The most intriguing aspect is that the artist does not alter the leaves, but uses them as they are to re-create these haute couture looks.

Some leaves are fresh, others are crumpled and some are in between varying states of decay. Each image is used on a white backdrop with grayscale figures. This results in a stunning and simple look, allowing the foliage to really stand out.
