Do you love old botanical prints? The digital collections of NYBG’s Mertz Library has thousands that you can browse online. The grandaddy resource for prints of this sort is  the BHL or Biodiversity Heritage Library and their excellent Flickr sets. The BHL is an official digital partner of ours and you will find tons of images from our collections amongst theirs. These prints are perfect for the short days of winter when all you can do is daydream about next spring’s beautiful blooms. ~AR

Wow! More incredible spangly, pop-style flower prints and questionable shoes (first seen at Ashish in London), this time in Milan at Blumarine.

These amazingly over-the-top prints by Ashish at London Fashion Week are straight-up fabulous. But we’re a bit unsure about the boot-bouquets. Perhaps it’s best to leave the flowers in the Garden?
