Seashell art in high end fashion

I really believe that art is an expression of ideas and emotions, a filling for line and form, color, light and shade and of course texture . Each person expresses himself in a different way, even though influenced by the work of others. I liked to use the natural beauty of the sea shells in the different personal projects. Seashells are very attractive objects and very helpful material for interior decoration.

You probably saw a lot of seashell decorated mirrors, boxes, frames. What I found unusual was how talented fashion designers use seashell element in their creations.
