Dresses That Look Like Famous Hokusai Woodblock Prints

Hokusai (c.1760-1849) was a famous artist in the Edo period of Japan. Among other works, he created extraordinarily vivid woodblock prints of the sea, most famously The Great Wave off Kanagawa (below).

These prints are so expressive that they almost seem to leap off the paper. So they've inspired Alena Akhmadulina, a Russian fashion designer, to produce a line of dresses that look like Hokusai's prints. You can see more at Rocket News 24.
