Everyone loves flowers, so this week we asked up-and-coming London-based flower handler Hannah James (@andflowers) for her favourite floral Instagram accounts…
“Simone Gooch is the florist I want to be. The word ‘fjura’ means ‘flower’ in Maltese, which I found out quite late into my obsession with Simone’s incredible displays, and being half Maltese myself, this made them all the more attractive. Her displays for the likes of Glossier, The Store and Pleasure Garden Magazine are so inspirational yet so simple in their colours, textures and overall aesthetic.”
“A truly modern floral account based in New York, Brittany Asch’s inventions are in your face – in a good way. Pastels and orchids galore, her feed is modern and playful, and often mirrors fashion and culture today with her witty, one-liner captions to match.”
“Not only do we share a name but also a passion for flowers in the everyday. The brainchild of visual artist Hannah Faith, Delika explores the splendour of flora through the medium of art. Her feed features flowers as a character rather than the main feature, which I love as it subtly celebrates their beauty. Her work with artist @mai_ye on Afro-Portraitism is something that first caught my eye.”
We’re up in Cambridgeshire this weekend working on our last wedding of the year. 💫💫💫 Thanks to all our amazing clients who made our 2017 a fun filled one! Here’s the fifth shot from the series created with @adam_goodison, a reminder of summer. Check out the full set in the latest issue of @rakesprogress mag.
“Another London-based florist specializing in luxury bespoke floral design; their feed is weird and wonderful, offering a very different image of traditional arrangements. Decadent and artistic, their work somewhat transcends reality, bringing to mind the age-old adage ‘life imitating art’.”
“The Plant was the first floral publication I picked up, when I decided that flowers were the thing for me. Colours are super important to me in any sort of visual, so their striking and often abstract covers pulled me in instantly, along with their documentation of ordinary flowers and plants.”
