My two loves, #Fashion and #Flowers

Sometimes I ask my self, if I could take one word or one expression and describe my self, what would it be? If my friends & clients  could use one word to describe me, what would they say? If I could choose of word to describe what I love most ( career wise) what would it be?  

After many pondering sessions and data collecting from friends, clients and acquaintances, I come to one consolation:  there are always two words:  Fashion & Flowers. And it is totally not surprising but I had to go round and round to realize why they mean so much to me. 

Fashion: well that is a no brainer - I have loved fashion since I can remember, in high school I was the one to always dress up and copy French Vogue outfits etc... -  now when you think of that think of a 14 year old girl, wearing suspenders, and ripped jeans, and super out there shoes, basically I got inspired by magazine and runways - and executed it as much as I could on my day to day outfits. Now when you are 14, 15  I‘ll be real,  I was a complete outcast and the black sheep in the crowd. But It felt right and I wanted to express my self, so ce la vie, that is who I was and that what I was going to wear, too bad for you. 

As I was growing up I knew I wanted to live in a big city and persu my fashion dream, it was Parsons or Ryerson - well as most of you know - Ryerson it  was for me in the early 2000’s. As a side note, as long as I remember my adult life, I was always trying to do something on the side, I always tried to come up with ways to express my self, my taste, my style, however you want to name it - It always tried to come out. My internal entrepreneur if you wish- I don’t know, I think you kinda grow in to the role, I  always was trying to come out lol - at one point I was importing russian jewelry called Gzhel, it was sold in gifts shops and one of a kind shows. I had a vintage clothing shop on EBay and was selling vintage angora and cashmere sweaters there, at the same time - I gathered some personal shopping  clients, I simply wanted to start something of my own, something  I would be proud of calling my own.

With a diploma in interior design and visual merchandising, a bachelor in fashion and a mom that breathes floral design I guess a future in events might have been a no brainer for the the outsider but to me, I feel like I literally fell into this. I remember I had a classmate in college, and as mentioned above I didn’t know where my path was going to take me and I shared the frustration, she said it’s funny how we don’t want and don’t see the obvious of what we are meant to do. 

She was right.  

Now I know.  

I was was meant to be here, I was meant to do this.   

I create things. I create experiences. I want them to be theatrical  and grand and make you ~FEEL~ 

These are some of my favorote fashion runways that always leave me breathless,what do you think ? Would something like this take your breath away? 

Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to hear from you

FLORAL RENAISSANCE

Floral RENAISSANCE is right!!!

As the on going life of a business owner never stops(It's true we dont sleep) I stumbled upon these photos taken around this time last year.  I do a lot of work with flowers, besides weddings and events , my favorites are installations and custom designs.   For this project though I had to go more artistic and refined where I got the chance to experiment with floral jewellery.  Playing on the lines of the jewellery, the organic flow and smooth textures of the florals, made this shoot absolutely heavenly. Sometimes you really do have to get our of the ordinary to do extraordinary things. Do you have something unique planned for your wedding? How did you go about creating it? I'd love to hear about it - let me know in the comments below. xo
