  1. Just a couple of thoughts…… flowers to carry and flowers to wear ??
    Id like to suggest they are pieces for display only .
    Stunning – don’t get me wrong BUT fitting the brief ?

      Hi Anne… They are both respectively being carried and worn … by what other criteria should they be categorised? There is no requirement for the competition entries — nor for art in general — to be practical.

  2. I really love the headpiece image shared in this blog and like the way fruits, berries & flowers are used in last pic. Great Job. Keep Posting.
