Fashion from Flowers

I popped over to Holland this week and payed a visit to Keukenhof gardens in Lisse, Keukenhof has to be the best spring garden in the world.
There is so much to see and it's not all about bulbs one of the highlights to a visit to Keukenhof this year is a visit to the Beatrix Pavilion. Apart from the fantastic orchid show there is the Flowers and Fashion show which is a fantastic display of couture fashion either made from or adorned with flowers.
The exhibition has been designed by Ronald Kolk, Philip Treacy, Jan Jansen, Janne Kyttanen and Maria Marcus. Now I am not much of a fashion lover but even I was amazed by the beauty of these dresses and the skill that has gone into making them.
The pavilion is so colourful filled with some of the most wonderful orchards you will ever see and the way they have combined the clothes with the same colour flowers is fantastic. If every fashion show was like this I may be tempted to get into fashion, as gardening and fashion really do go together as they are both arts.
The show is on from now until the 16th May and is a must see for the gardener and fashion lovers I have also added lots of pictures of the exhibition on Instagram.
See there website for full details
They have shoes and handbags too.
