Last month, we featured Fiore designs, just one of many artisan florists in our network that delivers beautiful, hand crafted bouquets on demand. To continue highlighting the talented individuals behind our Artisan Collections, we’ve decided to take some time to visit the Owner and Creative Director of Seed Floral Couture, Stephanie Elhayani.
Seed Floral Couture, located in West Hollywood, CA., is a new-fashioned flower shop that brings a fresh approach to floral design that is both electric and organic. The passion they have for flowers and floral design is contagious. They genuinely love what flowers do for people and their love and style are displayed in their creations.
We visited Stephanie and asked a few fun questions to give you a little insight into who she is and how she got her start in the floral industry. Here’s what she had to tell us:
What is your favorite flower? Oh man that’s a toughie, since I fall in love everyday with a different species. It really depends on my mood and the season, but if I had to pick one, it would be peonies. They’re just so magical from start to finish!
When did your love of florals begin/How did you get your start in the floral industry?
It was love at first sight! At 15 years old, just a sophomore in high school, when I answered a help wanted sign at the neighborhood flower shop. I didn’t know it then, but those four years of working part time planted the very SEED that has become my life long passion, and helped me to pursue a dream.
Where do you look for inspiration?
Inspiration is everywhere! I look to it in Nature, Fashion, Art and most importantly in Culture and traveling overseas.
Why did you choose The Bouqs as your partner?
My goal for 2015 was to expand our reach and generate more sales by streams of revenue. When the opportunity came our way it was a no-brainer for us to take on this new venture and give The Bouqs Company a shot! We haven’t looked back since & love everything about the brand and what it has to offer.
What is your favorite Bouq?
A gypsy soul at heart, I would have to say my favorite is the bohemian because of the uniqueness to the texture, colors and flower types.
What is your spirit animal?
My spirit animal would be the butterfly, constantly changing and transforming through life cycles.
