Fashion, with its primary function of personality expression, has shown us some pretty marvelous works of art in clothes design through the years. And though we’ve even seen dresses lowered into the Dead Sea, these gowns surprised the wardrobe out of us. French creator and fashion designer Sylvie Facon sew dresses from fabrics that she has created and with such attention to detail, they would steal any catwalk.

The designer gowns crafted by Facon ranges from very romantic lacework to high fashion dresses made from book spines, highlighting the incredible versatility of the dress designer skills. Craftsmanship without a fantasy couldn’t conceive such dreamy and one of a kind garments, but in Sylvie’s case, there’s no lack of creativity in her work.

Scroll down to check the designer dresses even Cinderella would envy and let us know what you think about them in the comments.
