I’m easily impressed by anyone who can do something clever with a balloon, but these dresses by Japanese artist Rie Hosokai are quite literally mind-blowing (pun intended). She began her career as a florist before venturing into the world of balloon design. After setting up Daisy Balloon she won an award at the Millienium Jam balloon festival in Belgium and went on to sell 20 wedding dresses made of biodegradable balloons. Prices range from $1,930 to $3,860 – potentially leaving your purse as weightless as the dress, but beautiful all the same!
