Fashion designers usually find their inspiration in the natural world: flowers, plants, a variety of colors and shades, animals etc., creating different patterns, elements and shapes for their clothing. We don’t actually know the true sources of inspiration designers found when creating these dresses. But look how awesome this Russian artist Lilia Hudyakova paired the most beautiful ones with masterpieces created by nature and humanity!

?Her project is called «1+1» and as you can see, it represents two images, where one of them is a dress made by a certain famous designer, and the second part is a natural view that Lilia imagines inspired the designer of a dress. And the resemblance is just breathtaking.

?Lilia works comparing different stuff, creating an impression that the designs of dresses from the runway are based on these photos and sketches. Not only natural views are involved in her works. Lilia also creates her collages finding parallels between fashion design and architectural masterpieces.

?It is hard to ignore how the artist defines the uncanny connection between fashion items and various forms of architecture designs. For instance, this dress from Alberta Ferretti 2015 collection matches perfectly with wall details of Chambre à Coucher de la Reine.
