Style Me Pretty's "Inspiration to Reality Challenge"

We recently had the honour and are super jazzed to have of been invited to take part in Style Me Pretty's, "Inspiration to Reality Challenge" and to top it off .....with such an extraordinary design team, of colleagues, professionals and friends! Readers designed and submitted their inspiration boards that they would like to see come to its fruition....we collectively chose the winning board (when I say "we" it typically means Kevin, this time...Cynthia), below....by Helena, named "Red Dress and Traditions". We felt it eclectic, rich in its yummy colour palette and symbolic elements, and that it allowed for design freedom and movement. The creative synergy when we all gathered was euphoric, if only clients could be a part of this magic as their design team collectively set the stage for their special day ....the ideas, the respect for each artists' thought and contribution, not to mention the funfactor was prolific! Join us in our excitement and anticipation by visiting Style Me Pretty, www.stylemepretty.com, often to see the unveiling of our spectacular collaboration, vision and result.

Who is Fuscia Designs

Kevin, Principal Creative Director

 

Kevin with 23 years in growing flowers and selling wholesale flowers, had dabbled in design throughout his career and was mentored by the best in the biz. It was when he joined Fuscia Designs that he truly discovered his inner rockstar, his creative gift and talent of designing flowers. He was allured into the world of events and the endless possibilities of innovative expression.

Kevins new favorite design philosophy...

“Simple is not the same as cheap, dramatic flowers and vases can stand alone. When you feature unusual flowers and strong shapes,just two or three blossoms are enough, especially when the form is repeated !!”

Kevins favourite floral architect and designer ,Jeff Leatham of Flowers Uncut, famous for his signature monochromatic bouquets strategically placed on a slant in a tall vase, in collections and groupings

Kevin has also realized a strong passion for fashion, and style, a metroman if you will with a shoe collection that rocks most out of the water. In fact his claim to fame is to convince grooms to invest in a stylish pair of designer statement shoes for their wedding, since typically they must rent a tux without a keepsake thereafter …not to mention those rental shoes are beyond hideous!

 

Kevin has brought the party into our meetings, so be prepared for a lot of laughter and fun at the Fuscia Designs Studio, we promise a good time had by all and sometimes we bring out the fuscia (pink) bubbly to toast and celebrate a well made decision!

 

 

Tamara, Principal Creative Director

short and sweet for now....

“With her high heels on and her “Fuscia” (Black) mini skirt…..” love that song!

The aspiration for Fuscia Designs was and is to bring Fashion, Glamour and Design to Flowers, the Vessels, Décor and Acoutrements. Dressing Soirees in wardrobes of Vibrancy, Drama and Luxe.Fetes et Fleurs and all things Fabulous, darlings!

My new favourite saying.

"One must always choose Stunning over pretty, for fear of mediocrity or better yet, to compromise is to choose mediocrity"

 

 One of my favourite shoes and shoe designer....Christian LeBoutin
