There is still time to hop on over to see some of UK and international finest florists and their stunning blooms at Chelsea Flower Show London, on until 23rd May 2015.
International asset manager, M&G Investments, commissioned Larry Walshe to create this astonishing 1930s-inspired dress, which took over 200 hours to produce. Featuring over 1,200 real Delphiniums, Hyacinths, Spray Roses & Limonium to celebrate their sixth consecutive year as title sponsor of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which opened on the 19th May 2015.
Celebrity florist Larry Walshe is one of Britain’s premier luxury floral designers. His lavish, abundant use of texture and colour coupled with a distinctive vision delivers opulent, memorable and dramatic designs that transform weddings and events both in the UK and abroad.
Crafted from very fine, soft grey voile and silk by skilled artisans, this dress assumes an organic silhouette that motions the fluidity and echoes the calmness of water. Fabric is gathered at a 1930’s drop waist to create a seductive and romantic form which draws further inspiration from the translucency of water. Timeless in its simplicity, the intricate floral embroidery detailing features delphiniums, spray roses, brunia, hyacinths and limonium. Rising up from the base of the dress, dissipating organically to hint at the delicacy of nature it softly emanates a “lady of the lake” aesthetic. Detailing is also be applied around the elongated neckline and cuffs. Crafted from a palette of pink, purple and blue tones the dress sits beautifully within an organic environment. The floral headband utilises the same floral detailing as the dress with a soft asymmetrical trail of grey satin ribbon which again nods to the 1930’s style.
