Designing with Flowers

I've never been the best at drawing. My fashion design strengths much lie in the manipulation of fabric; creating shapes and forms by draping, as opposed to communicating my ideas through brushstrokes and pen marks. However, as I'm headed to pursue onto a fashion design degree come September, drawing is something I'm having to come to grips with, and to really just get over it.

I love using organic lines and flowing forms in my fashion design experiments. Towards the end of my previous project - titled 'Drape' which I based around flowers - it occurred to me to use the actual form of flowers to inform my fashion designs, their own natural shapes illustrating the way in which the fabric would be draped.
