The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Philadelphia Flower Show is an annual event in March. It is the world’s oldest and largest indoor flower show. The Show features large-scale gardens, elaborate landscapes, and over-the-top floral creations. This year, the theme was “Celebrate the Movies.” I was thrilled to find an abundance of fashion: fashions from the movies, and fashions made entirely of botanicals.
Frilly underthings made of petals:
A Cuff Bracelet made of leaves, stems and berries:
A Wide Brimmed Hat made of pineapple and accented with roses:
A Sassy Hat and a Living Dress Form:
In keeping with the theme, “Celebrate the Movies,” there was a very special exhibit of 50+ vintage film fashions from Gene London’s collection:
Here are a few close-ups of some of the fashions to whet your appetite — there are many more on my Flickr.
So cool! I feel like I was there! Oh, wait. I was. 😛 Your photos are art in themselves.
Robbin, these pictures are amazing! Between the floral clothing and the costumes I don’t know which I would rush to see first…..thanks for posting these.
