Grace Ciao, a fashion illustrator, has wowed the world by creating beautiful 3D dress prints with flower petals.
Grace is a young freelance designer and a business student who began using flower petals as an alternative to regular pencil sketching.
She was given a rose whose petals began to wilt. In an attempt to save the petals’ beauty, Grace placed the petals on her design prints. This began Grace’s passion for working with flower petals on her dress sketches.
Even as a child, Grace had a real flair for fashion design. As a kid, Grace would create mini dresses for her Barbie dolls from fabric scraps that were given to her by her grandmother.
Instead of sketching her dress prints with a pencil, the 22-year-old began to spark new ideas using flower petals. Grace began experimenting with various petals and colours, and posted them on her website. Her breathtaking designs have gone viral and wowed the world.
Grace continues to create beautiful dress designs using flower petals, and regularly posts her latest designs on Instagram and Facebook.
Grace’s artwork consists of flower petal dress designs which feature a mesmerizing array of flowers and colour. Below, you will see designs which incorporate petals from roses, blue iris, violets, lilies and many more.
Her dresses include maxi dresses, body hugging dresses and ball gowns.
