Fleurs de Villes 2018
Metropolis at Metrotown, Burnaby, BC - May 3 - 6, 2018
What an exciting event to be a part of! It was a thrill to combine my love of fashions and flowers in this way.
15 designers and artists created the ultimate in "floral couture" created with only nature materials.
The yearly event is presented in major centres across Canada.
My model sported a 16 ft floral boa on a sleek cocktail sheath made of Hawaiian Ti leaves.
Check out the "hair" made of natural bear grass and tillandsia "xerographica" air plants!
Over 200 orchids,175 "Pink Floyd" roses
MidIsland Floral Arts Club Demonstration - Qualicum Beach, BC
On April 11, 2018, I visited Qualicum Beach, BC on beautiful Vancouver Island for the first time! The garden club invited me to share floral designs inspired by structure and nature. As always, the members enthusiasm for design was a pleasure to be around and everyone had a good time! More photos soon. Below is one of my favourite structures - I used flowering plum branches and my "midollino and tissue paper" accessories in a beautiful matte white bowl, which actually a discarded light fixture.
