Please welcome Kyoko Higa, lead designer at Celsia Floral. She will be assisting our brand with her creative talents bringing in a refreshing new perspective on designs and trends.
"I am merely a flower lover before a designer. I enjoy their natural simplicity and duplicity. Their ability to grow through the cracks of our modern industrial world and give us pause, in awe of their simple but complex beauty."
"The seemingly imperfect nature of flowers inspire me to tell stories.
Through the use of flora's colours, textures and shapes I'd like to evoke feelings and impart intimate messages of love and loss...of living. A flower's individual parts: petals, sepals, filaments, anthers and leaves give each stem a unique personality. My job is to highlight their personality. I tend to demolish the rules of traditional floral design while keeping it intact."
"As a floral designer, I'd like to continue suggesting my perspective of aesthetics of nature and apply it to what is of the moment and also, timeless. Duplicity." Kyoko.
