Wearing flowers in your hair is so passe. These days, it's all about wearing only flowers and leaves.

OK, maybe that's an exaggeration, but apparently the concept is gaining steam in the fashion industry and a number of designers have put together experimental ensembles for bio-fashion shows.

While the designs might not be practical, some of them are downright stunning, like this beautiful dress titled Camellia Countessa that was created by artist Nicole Dextras as part of her Weedrobes series.

Perhaps nowhere is this more clear than in her Weedrobes, where she examines the relationship between the human body an its environment.
