Not so, for artist Susan Lenz made her dresses for the upcoming fourth annual Columbia Design Leagues' Runaway Runway fashion show, using artificial recycled flowers and leaves collected from local cemetery dumpsters and trash cans.







More on Susan's blog here. Best of luck to her for the fashion show!

WOW!! Those dresses are very COOL!
I would totally wear one, but make sure to steer clear of any bee hives!

Oh lordy, I'll have to continue my spare-flower hoarding for a decade so I can make one of these awesome creations! xo
