Dresses Made of Flowers with Designer Carol Jillian
Have you ever admired those images of intricate dresses made of flowers? In this episode of the Team Flower podcast, we are joined by a very unique floral artist: Carol Jillian designs botanical couture, and she’s giving us the full scoop on this floral fashion!
You’ll learn what botanical couture is, how her interest in this field was sparked, and the various types of clients she serves. Carol creates floral dresses, headpieces, scarves, and everything in between! She’s walking us through the flowers she uses, the mechanics behind her creations, and her inspiration for this type of design.
We’re also chatting about the importance of building upon foundations. Carol has found that she often will reuse the same foundation to create a variety of pieces. This concept can be translated into any facet of your business—whether it be a template for proposals and contracts or the reason why you do what you do.
Carol grew up in Kamakura, Japan, and the appreciation of stark aesthetic is visible in her design. She is fascinated with botanical and floral couture, only creating pieces that inspire fluidity between the human body and botanicals—endlessly reimagining the possibilities of floral and botanical couture.
