Dior designer uses flowers as an inspiration at fashion show

At the Christian Dior autumn/winter couture show in Paris, flowers stole the spotlight on the runway as models in floral dresses showcased the new autumn/winter line.

The women wore dresses that resembled petals, and even had their hair shaped into bulbs for the event. Their hairstyles were then wrapped in colorful cellophane to invoke the floral theme, according to The New York Times.

One skirt at the event looked as though it was made of hydrangeas, and another ball gown featured a hand-painted pansy petal.

Perhaps the most revolutionary aspect of the show was the 3D technology employed to enhance the audience's viewing experience. Guests donning special glasses could see all of the colorful designs popping off the large screens at the venue.

This is not the first time that flowers have made an appearance at the show. According to the source, in 1997 the Dior collection utilized pink roses as accessories for the models.

This flower show may be an inspiration for those who love the vibrant colors of spring. The show's elegant patterns and color combinations could work well not only on stage, but in a festive vase on one's dining room table.
