Since moving to Louisiana, I’d taken up floral design and had started working for a shop doing wedding flowers part-time. It was something I had been interested in back in Texas, and now in New Orleans (since Fashion PR does not exist here) decided to pursue it.
This week marks the second month I’ve branched out on my own (although to even begin this process it’s been at least several months in the making). I will say this, for Louisiana to be such a laissez-faire environment (understatement) they sure make it a pain in the ass to open your own flower business. You would have thought I was trying to sell medical marijuana the hoop-la I had to go through.
But regardless of the flower politics, I’ve finally opened leaf + petal NOLA. My very own floral design studio.
Last night I made arrangements for a runway show/event at Anthropologie in Canal Place. I decided on a very ‘Anthro’ aesthetic, vintage tins mixed with a colorful palette of flowers.
So check out my new baby, Leaf + Petal NOLA
