Tang Chiew Ling
Fashion in Leaves is ongoing personal project by Malaysian illustrator and artist Tang Chiew Ling that explores various forms of leaves and flowers as if they were fashion sketches. Ling previously merged flora with illustration in another series of images called Object Art, and if you liked this, also checkout Drawing with Leaves.
Twenty-four-year-old graphic designer Tang Chiew Ling places her findings against the frames of her subjects, including Audrey Hepburn, to create soft suggestions of glamour, playfully creating high-fashion silhouettes with foraged organic matter. Decayed leaves feature as prominently in Fashion in Leaves as glossier, waxy specimens and occasional floral bursts of yellow. 'I realised withered leaves could be so beautiful,' she says. 'It just depends on how people see them'
