Established in 2009, we work globally with brands and individuals, designing fresh floral installations for campaigns, projects, weddings and private events. We focus on seasonality and sustainability, and we are known for our discretion and warmth, working closely with each of our clients. We take enormous pride in our testimonials, which reflect our personal approach and level of creativity.
We have recently launched our Flower School and online Digital Workshops, alongside our first collection of products. We work alongside expert crafters and makers, and collaborate with leading design museums and fashion houses, together creating exceptional products for our customers with design and flowers at the heart of everything we do.
We have two Studios, one in Central London (events and flower school) and a second in rural Sussex (product development, film and photography). We are preferred supplier to the V&A, Kensington Palace, Banqueting House and Hampton Court Palace. And our clients include, amongst others, Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, Hermes, Jo Malone, British Vogue, Lancome, Space NK and Fortnum & Mason.
Philippa is a self taught florist, and our team comes from a diverse background of production, photography, metalwork, carpentry and fashion. Alongside this diversity, every member of our team shares the same passion for flowers and down to earth approach to floristry.
We try always to use seasonal flowers and greenery, working with local growers wherever we are installing designs around the world. When we source from larger international growers, we ensure the flowers come from fair-trade farms and meet with our own environmental standards. Our relationships are long standing, we have worked with most of our suppliers since the beginning.
We avoid wherever possible using florist foam (a non-biodegradable plastic product often used in floristry), we use minimal plastic in our packaging (our flower bags and boxes are created from recycled and recyclable card) and all our green waste is either composted or when our events are in London, repurposed by Floral Angels, a charity set up to distribute once loved flowers to hospices and charities throughout the capital.
THE PRINCE’S TRUST
Philippa is an Ambassador for the Prince’s Trust, Women Supporting Women. Established by Chrissie Rucker, Founder of The White Company, and backed by a whole host of women in business, the new initiative sets out to nurture, inspire and empower young women, encouraging them into education, employment and training, to build better futures and in turn support others around them.
WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL
We were commissioned by the Victoria and Albert Museum to design and create an installation to honour Frida Kahalo during the sold out 'Frida Kahlo: Making Herself Up' exhibition. Positioned in the museum's central courtyard, the hugely popular sculpture became a social media superstar. Following the display, the sculpture was taken to Sotheby’s where she was auctioned for Women for Women International, raising thousands for women survivors of war.
Funds raised will go towards some of the most socially-excluded women survivors of war. Women for Women runs a year-long training programme, where women learn about their rights, life skills and business skills to improve their access to livelihoods and help them break free from poverty. It supports empowerment, independence and helps to break down prejudices, in turn benefiting the whole community.
We are enormously grateful to the V&A for agreeing to donate our commission to this cause. We will be creating an eBook, which will be released on 19th November, covering the background story to the making of our Frida Kahlo commission, with all profits going directly to the charity.
