The first event, Designers Choice is themed "Flowers on the Orient". Contestants will complete a design up to 1.2 metres deep and wide and 2.25 metres high within 2 hours. On the same day they will have their artistic flair tested again with a "Surprise Item" which they will complete in just over an hour. This is an exciting test of how spontaneous these designers from around the world can be with only 15 minutes to view the various items presented to them and create something amazing.
Flowers on the Orient
The form is based on simplicity of Asian style. The colour choices have been based on traditional reds to oranges. The accents in the designs are interpretations of good luck and traditional Chinese symbols.
This question can be answered in many ways, depending on the application of use. From modern to very traditional. Ofcourse I like to work with them! It is a broad range and I like all flowers!
People can recognize it because of my individual style; to the blend of colours and the choice of materials. I am all about colours. My style does draw peoples' attention as I think an arrangement must be pleasing to the eye.
Keith: "This is a floral competition. This particular piece I have kept and symplified, it is getting back to traditional Asian feeling."
Create within the time allowed an in store display for the famous Shanghai Tang Clothing and Accessories Store. Your design should reflect the vibrancy and contemporary ambience of this retail outlet. You do not have to use all of the materials provided, you may decide not to use some of the items at all.
Shanghai Tang is my favorite shop. I ate there last night! I would describe their style as the classic Asian feeling.The arrangement is all about the main brand. I did not use the pale and pastel coloured materials, as the signature of Shanghai Tang is bright colouring. It is all about bold colours against black. I did not use the bags in my arrangement, I specifically let them out.
