Grace Ciao Lends Her Floral Magic to Dolce & Gabbana

Grace Ciao Wraps Up Saks Glam Gardens with Three All-New Creations.

The month of May has gone by in a flash and I’ve had the greatest time being part of the Saks Glam Gardens campaign. Throughout May I was inspired by some of my favorite fashion brands – Dior, Burberry, Chloé – to create several looks for this season. Today, I am excited to share with you my final illustrations, featuring Dolce & Gabbana.

White Hydrangeas and Purple Erica Flowers Combined to Make Dolce Magic

The first look was created using a mix of White Hydrangeas and delicate Purple Erica flowers. Inspired by Dolce & Gabbana’s Wisteria Printed Blouse and Skirt, I’ve decided to use the intricate Erica flowers to accentuate the floral prints on the outfit. The large Hydrangea petals were layered one upon the other to depict the natural folds and flares of the skirt.

Creating This Look Was Like Working on a Beautiful Puzzle

Recreating this look was an interesting, yet fun experience for me. Since the petals of most flower types typically lack elaborate detailing on them, layering smaller ones on large clean folds worked really well in bringing out the bold floral prints on the skirt. How do you find my interpretation of Dolce & Gabbana’s Wisteria Printed Set?

Dolce Eau De Parfum

The second look I created was inspired by Dolce & Gabbana‘s soft, feminine, floral Dolce Eau De Parfum. Opening with the freshness of Neroli leaves and the papaya flower, the scent transitions to the heart of the fragrance – amaryllis, narcissus and water lilies. I adore Dolce’s sophistication in its packaging, signifying a vintage fragrance flacon.

Turning Ready-to-Wear Into Haute Couture

Keeping close to the heart of Dolce, I’ve decided to use Amaryllis petals, albeit a beautiful apricot color, for my version of the brand’s Ruched Crepe Dress, to symbolize the fullness and elegance of the fragrance. The soft texture of the petals seamlessly mirrored that of silky velvet fabric. The large Amaryllis petals were ideal for layering and I had tremendous fun experimenting with several petal placements to create the final look.

The Volume of These Amaryllis Petals Captures the Essence of the Dolce Fragrance 

Voilà! Here’s the final look. Working with blooms this May has certainly been a joy for me. Some of the ready-to-wear looks I illustrated for Saks Glam Gardens have definitely urged me to go beyond my comfort zone and I had a whole lot of fun creating them. I hope you’ve found some inspiration in my floral creations this spring!

 

Hold on to spring with Dolce & Gabbana’s Dolce Eau De Parfum.
