A couple of years ago, we took a trip over to San Diego to attend the The Special Event conference. There we met some of the best floral designer's in the industry like Tara Guerard of Soiree, Nancy Liu Chin, and AIFD's Hitomi Gillian.
I have to admit, the first time I saw Hitomi's designs my jaw hit the floor. They were avant- garde, larger than life, and totally unique (at least to me). Here's an example of her style:
I continue to draw inspiration from these fabulous women! Hitomi recently shared her Floral Trends Forecast for 2012 with the International Floral Distributors (source we often use while researching the latest and greatest blooms available on the market).
