“Flowers are the smile of earth.” This is one of the most famous aphorisms of American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, which almost everyone will agree with. Every year, we patiently wait for the new first rays of spring, ending the dull days of winter and eliciting the loveliest flowers out of the soil. Suddenly the whole city blooms in a sea of ??green and delicate colorful flowers.

Flowers have always been one of the most meaningful symbols of femininity in the fashion world, and every season, they appear on the runways and showrooms to allure fashion enthusiasts from all regions of the world.

The whole world pricked up its ears and raised its eyes full of enchantment and admiration when a very special talent showcased her love of flowers in the most creative way. Singaporean artist Grace Ciao has worked with well-known labels such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Jaeger Le-Coultre and Elie Saab, for whom she created stunningly charming fashion illustrations. Beautiful graces, formed from delicate watercolors, loll on paper and bear overwhelmingly sumptuous gowns in the most intense colors on display. Is this simply ordinary drawing? Only at second glance will you notice that these illustrations are by no means of vulgar nature, because the clothes are made of real flowers which Grace Ciao has arranged to flowing skirts and flattering bustiers. In order to counter the transience of floral beauty, she captures the graceful drawings on photographs.

This brilliant idea made the fashion illustrator a star in the social network overnight and earned thousands of new fans on Facebook and Instagram who celebrate the overwhelmingly beautiful power of flowers with her.
