Out was the festival's usual floral design competition and in was the high fashion of a "Bespoke Flower Event"...
Only one mannequin was in the lobby, the other twelve were in the main room of the convention center, which meant they were under the same dramatic lighting that makes it difficult to take photos of the show gardens. This design was by Flirty Fleurs...
The umbrella design was fabulous.
From Coree Ryan at Zupans Market...
The woven palm fronds were a fun touch.
Garden Party Flowers
The headdress and mask were gorgeous.
I think this was my favorite, from Tobey Nelson.
I believe the dress is made from Leucadendron argenteum leaves.
From Hazel Landscapes + Design
Note the fur sleeve trim on her moss coat...
Nice detail work!
The floral explosion at the base was also very well done.
Leah Erickson Floral is responsible for this revealing dress with the huge floral cape.
And the last mannequin I took photos of is wearing an outfit by Terra Bella Flowers.
While was a Fleurs de Villes was a marvelous collection of talent and creativity I hope it doesn't permanently replace the regular floral competition at the show. It was over-the-top fun, but not something I'd want to see every year.
