Botanical collections- proudly displayed...
A different kind of botanical display is of chintzed cotton from Pierre Frey and the company's collaboration with Deyrolle, the taxidermy house on Rue du Bac in Paris, which has an unparalled collection of ancient school blocks composed of flowers, fruits and trees in their archives.
Arboretum fabric used to create a garden party dress by designer Michelle Smith for her Milly collection.
The pièce de résistance of botanical beauties is the work of Christopher Marley. His creations are amazing. Christopher's insects themselves, and the designs they comprise, evoke feelings of structure, mechanics and form rather than slithering and clicking. Christopher says: "I consider myself more of a designer than an artist, more of a storyteller than an author."
There are also numerous images that have been licensed from his botanical works of art. Pheromone: The Insect Artwork of Christopher Marley is his first book, with a second book soon to be released.
