Ciao's inspiration and idea for the use of flowers stemmed from her want to preserve a rose given to her by a boy that was dying.  She tells BuzzFeed that “I remembered how beautiful it used to be and wanted to ‘preserve’ this beauty. So I made fashion illustrations out of them”

Her act of wanting to preserve the beauty of the rose is intrinsically reflective of mother's nature spirited nurturing and preservation attributes.
