British Flowers Week: Presenting Zita Elze



Hello lovely readers, I love flowers and last week was British Flowers Week, an annual campaign to promote British flowers and foliage. This year the campaign called upon independent florists and growers across the country to get behind the campaign, and I was super excited to find a very talented florist designer I love , Zita Elze getting exposure in this campaign revealing her amazing work.

Going to a number of exhibitions and meeting suppliers Zita was always a person that I wanted to work with because of her creativity and I am so happy that this year I finally got my wish (puff chest with pride).  You will be able to see the results of our collaboration soon. But in the mean time I wanted to use this post to show just how talented she and her team really are.

Inspired by the larkspur flower (a name commonly given to the annual delphinium), Zita was inspired to create the haute couture gown featured above and below for British Flowers Week and all I can say is Zita not only has the midas touch, but everything she touches literally turns to art.

The fitted bodice of this gown was made with individual flowerheads of larkspur, clematis, delphinium, nepeta, astrantia, nigella and cornflowers interspersed with jewels which leads down to a flowing skirt of cascading larkspur stems.

Stunning don’t you think? Well if you are looking for a florist I would whole heartedly recommend Zita and her team and all her details can be found here, they are all very sweet and down to earth so you will come to love them as much as I do.
