Canadian environmental artist Nicole Dextras created these "Weedrobe" pieces from everything from invasive species to plants from her own garden. The garments are worn out by models in order to "engage the public", and the clothes are later left outside to decompose naturally.

Though they're beautiful works of art, they have a larger purpose:
"The Weedrobes philosophy is based on being a free thinker, creating one's own sense of style while also raising awareness about the impact of industry on our eco-system. Our most effective tool for change is for consumers to demand more equitable products. It may be impractical to wear clothing made with leaves, but our future depends on the creation of garments made from sustainable resources."
