Fashion Friday: Fleurotica Fashion Show 2013


It was a night to remember! Fleurotica was a runway show like no other—haute couture meets horticulture!

Fleurotica was the hottest fashion event that took place this summer!  On June 12, 2013, thirty top floral designers and landscape artists came together  to create stunning, one-of-a-kind haute couture pieces made of fresh flowers and luscious plants for the exciting runway show that took place at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, IL.

Models paraded down the runway, one amazing floral outfit after another. Some models rocked the runway with accessories, such as big, bold floral headpieces, angel wings made of twigs, and even a little poodle dog made of carnations! The designers used fresh flowers, foliage and other organic material in their creations; roses, orchids, calla lilies, carnations, anthurium, mosses, magnolia leaves and more could be seen on the runway. The winning design was an elegant 19th-century inspired green fern ballgown with a 10 feet fern train!

It was definitely feast for the eyes, which you will be able to see for yourself in this video:
