We celebrate autumn with a foliage focused Happy Monday – Fashion in Leaves by Malaysian artist Tang Chiew Ling

Autumn is well and truly here and while we miss the summer sunshine, it's hard to beat autumn's crisp, low-lit evenings and beautiful displays of multicoloured leaves. Which brings us on to this week’s Happy Monday: an ingenious celebration of leaves in all their variegated, whimsically shaped glory, courtesy of Malaysian artist Tang Chiew Ling. Chiew Ling arranges leaves of different shapes, sizes and stages of decay on top of delicately rendered fashion illustrations in black ink to create surprisingly evocative garments. From a fishtail gown made from shiny green fronds to a billowing ball gown made from 50 brown, withered leaves, we hope these examples of high fashion foliage add a touch of autumn cheer to your day.

Happy Monday! #anotherhappymonday
