New York Fashion Week! Always an exciting time in NYC!
Here at L’Olivier Floral Atelier, we were all thrilled to partner with fashion designer and haute couturier to the stars, Gilles Mendel yesterday for the J. Mendel Autumn/Winter 2016 ready-to-wear presentation during New York Fashion Week.
I have always been a fan of J. Mendel and their total glamour and indulgence of rich fabrics and furs! Known for his signature luxe-femininity and effortless elegance, Gilles was inspired by the calla lily motif, drawing upon elements of its strength, fragility and beauty.
To implement our artistic vision, we worked with Dummen Orange, world leaders in floral breeding and Sande, market leaders in calla lilies to create the perfect backdrop for the runway showcasing over 3,000 black calla lilies. Each guest received a black calla lily on their seat with a note card saluting the creativity and craftsmanship of J. Mendel.
Take a look at these breathtaking pictures from the collaboration! L’Olivier <3 J. Mendel.
