Robin Barcus "Green" Dresses

Who new that corn husks and sticks would make such beautiful dresses?! Robin Barcus created a series of dresses out of all natural objects and then displayed them on models in the material's natural environment. The result is stunning...the woman in the water bringing up a real life image of the Lady of Shallot. 

"And down the river's dim expanse
Like some bold seer in a trance,
Seeing all his own mischance --
With a glassy countenance
Did she look to Camelot.
And at the closing of the day
She loosed the chain, and down she lay;
The broad stream bore her far away,
The Lady of Shalott."

-Lord Alfred Tennyson
