Fleurs de Ville - Mayfair Centre & Fairmont Empress - Victoria Photographer - Dragonflight Photography

Lucky enough to be over in Victoria to catch the lovely Fleur de Ville Event at Fairmont Empress & Mayfair Centre. With such creative talent in Victoria it was amazing to see the ideas of floral couture dawning the atriums. Fleurs de Ville means Flowers of the Cities. The goal of the event is so showcase local florists and designers creating beautiful displays of art.

Over the weekend they will be hosting an European inspired pop-up flower market in Mayfair Centre. Want to be the winter blues? Bring in some spring blooms! 


Would you wear a completely floral gown? 



1st on our Fleurs de Ville Journey was a stop at the lovely Fairmont Empress Hotel to meet a royal.

This incredibly installation was designed and created by Tina at Platinum Floral with the help of Emma McCormick Events. Intricate details of Kate's dress when she visited Victoria were recreated in this gorgeous floral piece. Such incredible detail to create this gorgeous nod to royalty.

  If I could pack something frivolously with me everywhere or I was a royal, I'd truly make a point to bring a suitcase with colourful blooms!



Next stop was Mayfair Shopping Centre

I over heard a few guests at the event talking about how it reminded them of a line that Yves Saint Laurent once dawned on the run way!







Lastly, Jane & Erin from Petals Plus bringing the tropics to the gloomy winter weather. With nods to the flapper era and usage of palms for their 2nd installation I'd be willing to totally dawn the tropic's gown for a Hawaiian luau!
