Refreshing Interpretations

I'm sure we are all aware of the ombré effect that has become so popular on everything from hair, to bleached out denim. Whilst researching for another post, I came across these pieces from Mathew Williamsons' Spring 2013 Ready-To-Wear collection, that took the idea of ombré combining it with bleaching and brought them together to create a most beautiful baby.
The interest you get from moving the eye across such a vast palette is very intriguing. I love how it looks like water fell on ink and the colours distributed themselves across the rest of the fabric.

From what I could find about the technique used, the designer collaborated with artist Shane McAdams who used a combination of ink, oil and resin to create the effect seen.

This is fashion.

The look for less? Found this water colour print dress for 79.99 from Mango.com.
