Today is Hermann Rorschach‘s 129th birthday and though his famous ink-blot test is used extensively in pyscho-analytic procedures, we wonder if he ever knew that the designs produced from the inkblots would go on to become fashion inspirations.

A number of designers from around the world have used inkblot prints over the years and most recently, so have Prabal Gurung, Ralph Rucci, Michael Lo Sordo and our very own desi designer, Ken Ferns.

Check out how these talented designers have interpreted – through prints and embroidery – Hermann Rorschach’s ink-blot concept:
