Antwerp-based Belgian florist extraordinaire Mark Colle has been busy this year… especially when Raf Simons (who’s also Belgian) decides to have him create floral fantasies for not one, but two of his fashion shows.
The first was for Raf’s last collection for Jil Sander back in March where beautiful blossoms were encased in glass boxes, seven in all, to mark the number of years he spent with the label.
Mark then designed the fabulous floral rooms for Raf’s first couture collection under the Dior name that took the blogging and Twitter world by storm in early July.
Over a million fresh flowers were used to decorate a Parisian “hotel particulier” as a backdrop to a collection that paid homage to Mr. Dior’s “Flower Women” and passion for gardens.
It’s no wonder the audience was left breathless… even the video about the creation of the botanical bonanza is a sight to behold.
We’re torn as to which ravishing runway we like best… Which do you prefer - container gardens or wallflowers?
