Made with fruits, weeds, flowers, and leaves, ‘Weedrobes’ is the delightful series of meticulously detailed, perishable gowns, coats, and suits by Canadian environmental artist Nicole Dextras. Striking a careful balance between style and commentary, the message behind Weedrobes is aimed squarely at the not-always-so-sustainable practices of the fashion industry, while also redefining the perceived immortality of haute couture.
Dextras’ garments begin life as plants harvested from a variety of places, ranging from areas affected by invasive species to specimens from Dextras’ own garden.
After constructing her pieces, Dextras photographs each Weedrobe with a model, and they are sent out to “engage the public” by interacting with passerby. Afterwards, each garment is left to be ‘reclaimed’ and to decompose naturally.
The US exhibition will feature more than 100 pieces of work.
