This year, Fleur Floral Fashion is a welcome alternative to the well-attended international flower festival Fleuramour. In anticipation of the spectacular 25th anniversary in 2022, the organization already wants to let you enjoy a corona-safe flower festival. Smaller and more limited, but no less beautiful! Curious which internationally renowned florists participate in the biggest flower event of the year? Find out more here.
Fleur Créatif and [email protected] floral designers
The florists of our internationally renowned flower arranging magazine unleash their creativity on the theme ‘A Castle Deserves Art’.
Rita Van Gansbeke will design various frames with floral and natural materials. She will also present a flowery table decoration. We can’t tell you what that will be just yet, but Rita will use her creativity of that moment.
Moniek Vanden Berghe‘s work has been featured in Fleur Créatif Magazine for years. At Fleur Floral Fashion, she will design with materials such as cardboard, which she gives new life through the use of powerful flowers.
Sören Van Laer and Aymeric Chaouche amaze with a romantic rose creation.
Sören already loved flowers as a child. He completed his last year of horticultural training with a specialization year in flower arrangement and then followed an internship with master florist Geert Pattyn. By participating in Fleur Talent!, Sören became acquainted with the entire floral world and was able to develop a large network. Today, Sören is a freelance florist and has his own flower studio. Aymeric is a young French florist who has been working in Sören’s studio for over a year. Together they give workshops, participate in events and have started a webshop.
They are happy to share their passion with you during Fleur Floral Fashion!
The other FLEUR designers will also be present and will undoubtedly showcase amazing floral arrangements: Annick Mertens, Charlotte Bartholome, Martine Meeuwssen and Chantal Post.
And more famous floral designers!
Many other famous designers from Belgium and abroad will create stunnig flower creations, small or large, in and around the castle in Alden Biesen (Bilzen, Belgium). Together they will turn Fleur Floral Fashion into a unique experience.
Floral artist Ben Clevers published his book Leaves this year, a professional and inspirational book about flower arranging with leaves. His unprecedented ambition for the profession led him to become an official supplier to the Dutch Royal Household. For his creation at Fleur Floral Fashion, Ben will use the leaf – in all its shapes and beauties – as his source of inspiration.
Ioachim Erema was born in Romania, but has lived in the United Kingdom since his 20s. He is a well-known florist at Fleuramour. Every year he manages to amaze the visitors with his flower arranging talent. In 2019, his project ‘Protect the Future’, was one of the best floral arrangements in the theme ‘Back to the Future’. This year will be a smaller and more limited edition of Fleuramour, but our expectations for Ioachim Erema’s work are still high!
Jimmy Englund and Conny van der Westerlaken join forces to furnish the cellar of the castle. To put it in their words: “We want it to be surprising and stunning. We set the bar high!”
This year, Andrea Stör will be present at Fleuramour for the second time, together with her team. She surprises us with a project called ‘The New World’, which refers to her new view on floral art after a year in which the world radically changed. “While many people want to return to what life was like before the pandemic, the new normal will not be the same,” Andrea says.
Other master floral artists who have already confirmed their presence at FLEUR FLORAL FASHION by Fleuramour: Viky Vangampelaere , Mieke Hoflack , Mike Boerma , Peter Boeijkens , Els Gerdens , Natallia Sakalova , Frank Timmerman , Ivan Bergh .
