Flowers Meet Fashion

In today's world, fashion is everywhere including the florist industry. Florists and designers around the world are creating masterpiece designs using flowers. Flower crowns were first introduced in ancient Greece. The ancient Greeks introduced the crown as an honorary award to athletes, army victors, as well as poets and musical contests. The crown was a signified respect and achievement. Since the crown has been introduced, many cultures have adopted the ideals and tradition of the symbolic headpiece. The ancient Chinese traditionally wore the crown, made of orange blossom flowers, at weddings as a symbol of fertility. During the Victorian era, Queen Victoria wore an orange blossom flower crown to her wedding in 1840. After that, the flower crown became associated with the wedding phrase “to gather orange blossoms,” which became associated with the meaning “to seek a wife.”

In today's culture flowers are not just being worn as a crown. The trend has evolved into necklaces, bracelets, and even dresses. Around the world people are calling this new trend “Floral Couture.” Fashion shows are dedicated to florists’ and designers who are creating works of art from nature. This is way way for people to combine their love of flowers and their love of fashion. People are saying floral couture is “another channel to explore creativity.” Inspirations for the designs come from different cultures, fashion, art, and everyday life. The inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere all around the world.
