Insects In Fashion


Caprice Modeling Insect Wear

Kensington Gardens in London, England contains a large variety of plants and trees and provides habitat for insects. The Kensington Gardens has galleries and other attractions that require private funding. Every summer, Kensington Gardens hosts a fundraiser for the Serpentine Gallery. The fundraiser is a magnet for media stars from actors to models to musicians, a place to be seen, photographed and grab some limelight. The fashionistas want to know what is in. This year, fashion model Caprice stole the entomologist vote with her stunning insect theme dress. The dress features stylized beetles with leaf colored wings and stalked “bug eyes”, a perfect dress for visiting a garden. This year, the Serpentine Summer Party had more of an “insect” theme with musician, Jake Bugg providing the music.
