Mother Nature has an inimitable ability to inspire designers; take this Mushroom Art Dress by Etsy artisan Toolgrrl, for instance. It's inspired by an Ernst Haeckel illustration of a stinkhorn fungus from the 19th century. The relationship this piece has with the environment isn't just limited to mushrooms, though, as every inch of the dress is made with recycled materials.

The Mushroom Art Dress is currently being shown at the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center; it's for sale on Etsy for $1,200. Stats for Stinkhorn Fungus Fashion Trending: Older & Warm
