“The course with Zita was very special to me. During the 4 week course I was able to learn various techniques and gain confidence in handling flowers. Thanks to Zita for inspiring me and amplifying my emotions and creativity.”
HeeWon Kim has the personality and appearance of a delightful little princess, soft, gentle with refined taste and a passion for haute couture. By the end of the course she had made some astonishing creative progress.
In the final ‘wedding week’, featured here, she produced a mood board reflecting her personality and taste, focusing on designs for her own marriage. She chose blush tones mixed with gold, distressed wire, featherweight fabrics, tulle and an overall feel which dwelt on softness and light. A trip to a prop hire company, a fabric shop to buy cloth for her flower embellished dress and an all-important visit to Covent Garden Flower Market followed, working within a pre-specified budget, just like a real brief. We were all delighted when the final London flower school photo shoot highlighting this stellar student’s creations appeared in Korea’s Flora magazine.
