At the occasion of NY Fashion Week, L’Olivier Floral Atelier and Dümmen Orange, one of the world’s leading floral breeders, saluted iconic fashion house J. Mendel – L’Olivier created a floral interpretation of one of Gilles Mendel’s Spring 2017 designs.
From September 12th to the 15th, we invited visitors to L’Olivier’s Brookfield Boutique to discover our life-size, whimsical, floral adaptation of Gilles Mendel’s original sketch, and for a chance to meet the designer himself. By following us on Facebook and on Instagram @lolivierfloralatelier, and by posting your “Favorite J Mendel Floral Look,” we gave our followers a chance to attend our exclusive, private cocktail event on September 15th where we celebrated the collaboration, courtesy of Cointreau. One lucky raffle winner was gifted the original, autographed sketch, as well as a gorgeous floral arrangement.
We were so happy to commemorate Gilles Mendel on this year’s NY Fashion Week, and so glad that all of our guests had a wonderful time. Looking forward to next year’s celebration, and a special thank you to J Mendel, Dummen Orange, Cointreau, and Brookfield Place for making it all a reality!
