Seeing florals inspire spring fashion has become expected, but these incredible bags take natural influences to the next level.
These purses, crafted by Kathleen Dustin, are so intricately detailed, they looks like real flower buds. They'd be beautiful sitting on a bookshelf, but why would you want to deprive the rest of the world from enjoying such beauty?
Dustin must have been thinking the same thing, so she turned her stunning creations into wearable works of art with a purpose. Believe it or not, she's an art major who found out that fashion was her passion.
Shown in the gallery are the Corn Catchfly Pod, Nigella Pod (open and closed) Opening Seed Pod and Blumen Bachia Pod from the fruit- and flower-inspired Pod collection.
