Fleurotica 2011 is a yearly fashion show at Garfield Park Conservatory, the draw is that instead of local fashion designers, local florist design looks of live plants and flowers. This year we (flowerpetal) participated on March 25th and our Head designer Susan Rodriguez really came out with guns blazing. I went as her assistant and took some great back stage shots ala Project Runway style. It was a lot of work but wicked cool. There will be more pics added of the runway etc one we get our copies. I suggest if you got the bank, go next year. Saffira jewelry was nice enough to loan us pieced for our model as well. Our model Kelly Connors, while only 1 year in the biz, was pleasant and upbeat the whole time. Which was a relief cuz I did see some pouty not so happy faces getting dressed.
