As an example, this piece by Hanny Couwenhoven reflects the rainbow of colors as well as the sky. The sheer fabrics allow the background to be seen, as well as creating more color variations as the transparencies of different fabrics are layered on each other.

Of course, any type of fiber that is exposed to the elements needs to be constructed with the understanding that wind, storms, rain, and sun will all take their toll. You need to check the weather patterns for the location you'll be exhibiting and make sure to construct your piece with materials and techniques that will stand up stronger to the environment. For instance, seams may be sewn double and "fabrics" might include tyvek, canvas, or nautical materials.
