Artists Studio Job created a backdrop of wilting flowers for Viktor & Rolf's Autumn Winter 2013 show at Paris Fashion Week (+ slideshow).
Giant floral prints in various shades of grey were repeated across the partitions at the bottom of the catwalk to compliment the monochrome collection, titled Rebellious Sophistication.
The pattern was inspired by the work of 19th Century English textile designer William Morris.
Models walked down a runway covered in a printed herringbone arrangement of grey and white wooden planks.
The graphics stood out against the ceiling and tiered seating that were painted black for the show, which took place earlier this week.
