Friday April 29th: The Flower Appreciation Society
On the day of the Royal Wedding I bring you a floral tribute ..............
............ in the guise of a creative duo known as "The Flower Appreciation Society". Ellie and Anna came together through their shared passion for all things flora having originally studied illustration and textile design. They have turned their flair for colour and line in composition to arranging flowers for a variety of different purposes. Here are some shots taken during the preparatory work for YCN's Ideas Illustrated project Relocate.
"We relocated our society into another society, The Paddington Bowling Society, taking the Flower Appreciation Society ON TOUR." Their trademark tactile quirky aesthetic comes from using exclusively English seasonal flowers with festoons of foliage to balance the blooms.
The beautiful flower hat here was constructed for the front cover of Upstyler magazine ..................... a potential style suggestion for the Royal Bride to wear on her departure after the party perhaps? I would liked to have seen Kate carry a Flower Appreciation Society bouquet to match the stunning McQueen dress!
