I discovered this Melbourne photographer via Miss Moss. Lovely flower and plant captures.

IT. is the clothing label lovechild of Paris based German designer Isabell Thrun. The spring/ summer 2014 collection entitled Blütezeit has a strong floral focus. I put together a flower crown for her lookbook which you can checkout below. Head to her online shop to buy a handmade piece (my personal favourite is the Muscari).
And a big thank you to the beautiful Mariëtta for introducing me to Isabell and so many other wonderful people in Paris.
Pretty Streets Botanicals is a Brooklyn based floral design studio. They also run a little flower stand at the Bedford Cheese Shop. Owner Kristen Ossmann has her own flower garden and tries to use home grown flowers whenever possible. I love this new movement if florists growing their own or having really direct relationships with small local flower farms.

My friend Ama asked me to demonstrate how to make a flower crown for her blog L’Effrontée. We had a fun evening putting this together for you.
You will need:
2. Thin wire
3. Flowers (consider colour combinations and flowers that will happily last without water for a day)
4. Foliage (ivy is great, or whatever you can forage)
Measure the wire around your head. Keep some length to create a hook to secure as below
Wrap the floral tape around the wire
Prepare flowers and foliage – cut to size and work out what you want to go where
Begin to place flowers and foliage two at a time, securing with more floral tape
Then it’s as easy as continuing to place two pieces at a time and keep securing with floral tape. Try to place flowers thickly so the wire isn’t seen. Once finished you can store the flower crown in the fridge to keep it fresh.
Check out Ama’s blogpost here.

As always, their latest show was ultra feminine and evocative of that great Italian era à la La Dolce Vita. Spring was on full show with the gorgeous floral prints, embellishments and flower crowns. A girl can dream.

I visited the High Line in New York for the first time in summer last year and it was top of my list of things to do when I was back in town earlier this month. This rambling walkway park is made from a disused rail line and runs from Chelsea to Meatpacking.
Sydney recently proposed its own version of the High Line, which they’ve called the Goods Line. Hopefully we get to see it get made.
