Art Nook: Fashion in Leaves by Tan Chiew Ling.


By Bianca Nieves

When feeling lost for inspiration, Tan Chiew Ling doesn’t get her visions from being secluded between four concrete walls; instead, this Malaysian freelance graphic designer lets the tree nymphs guide her way towards subtle, organic perfection.
By utilizing the leaves and flowers she collected from her garden, she started a witty and clever project and conjured graceful silhouettes with these natural materials as her medium. Each leaf accentuates the vision of the dress and intertwines perfectly with Ling’s handmade, mixed media drawings.


Thanks to her brilliant way of seeing the little details, what seemed at first as a complete challenge, turned into fashion illustration at its finest, and showed us that: it’s all a matter of perspective.
