French Designer Sews Dresses With Out Of This World Designs

From book spines to illustrations, her designs are stealing the catwalk!

Remember the famous line, “dress to impress?” Well, this is very true in our everyday lives. We always make sure that we wear the nicest of dress or clothes. And although the reason could vary, the common denominator is that we want to “impress” someone. Apparently, a French designer is taking this idea to a whole new level.

Sylvie Facon sews dresses just like an ordinary designer does. But unlike any other, she settles with stuff that would steal any catwalk. And by stuff, we mean using book spines. Yes, that is right – she uses book spines to create dresses that you do not usually see on a regular basis. From spines of old texts to steampunk-inspired garment details, Sylvie is definitely not your ordinary designer.

Scroll down below to see her beautiful works. We assure you: Her dresses will blow you away.

For starters, here is a dress made from book spines.

Sylvie also collaborates with other artists to deliver “art-inspired” dresses. The Knight dress below is basically an interpretation of artist Didier Graffet’s illustration.

A fascinating contrast between two photos taken at the same vantage point but at different times.

Britain's foreshore can present scenic views, which, when taken during different times of the day, are equally mesmerizing, thanks to a sort of "magic trick" brought about by tides.
