World Cup competitors to collaborate at Auckland Flower Show
New Zealand floral designer Iain Stephens competed against Australian florist Mark Pampling at the 2004 Interflora World Cup of floral design. Now the two will work together on a huge floral display for the Auckland Flower Show.
Their exhibition will be a feature of the Professional Florists' Design Hall at the Auckland Flower Show. Measuring 8m x 4m in size, the design will align with this year's professional floral designers' competition theme of 'Fusion Flowers'.
Iain says that collaborating internationally over a floral design is not the biggest challenge, but filling such a large space will be. "It's going to big, bright and bold," he says.
