What imagination, creativity and skill. Photographer Michel Tcherevkoff (believe it or not he was once an attorney) was inspired by a leaf he saw during a photo shoot that reminded him of a shoe. Voila! The fantasy began. He took photos and recreated those single photos into the amazing shoes you will find in his book, Shoe Fleur: A Footwear Fantasy. The photos are gorgeous. The ideas are brilliant. I’m inspired. I want to be a little garden fairy and wear them all! Learn more about Tcherevkoff at www.tcherevkoff.com
(Copied from Amazon’s descrtiption)Shoe Fleur: A Footwear Fantasy debuts an outrageous imaginary collection of botanical shoes and accessories created by photographer and artist Michel Tcherevkoff. Each virtual shoe and handbag is amazingly crafted out of numerous photographs of a single plant or flower. The result is both organic and cutting edge. Art, attitude, romance, and nature combine in this garden of flirtatious footwear presented here in fashion’s latest avant-guarde offering. Bearing witty and whimsical names and captions to compliment their playful design, every shoe and handbag has a story to tell–or a secret to keep. Fashionistas will find everything they need, from the “Pre-Nup,” a slipper made from the virginal white lily, to the “Miss Tress,” the sole of adult discretion, to the “Tally Ho,” a handbag fit for a fox hunt, to the “Frieda Kahlo,” a feminine shoe with a sturdy soul–built for the road less traveled.
