Chelsea Floristry on Film

youtube-dress-rhs-chelsea-flower-show-2014-florist-flowersCar­o­line Marshall-​Foster gets up close and per­sonal with the RHS Chelsea Florist of the Year com­pe­ti­tion entries in a series of short films.

The Florist of the Year com­pe­ti­tion was utterly astound­ing this year, so much so that every one of the entrants received a Sil­ver, Silver-​Gilt or Gold medal. Click here for our full selec­tion of pho­tos, includ­ing close-​ups and back-​shots of the flo­ral gowns, designed to be worn to a fan­tasy crys­tal ball. But we felt that even our array of images didn’t show the dresses in their full glory, so Car­o­line has made this selec­tion of videos in which she talks through each design. She even man­aged to catch Gold medal­list Sarah Bar­row for an inter­view before break­fast! Enjoy…

Here Car­o­line films the dresses made by Vicky Rymell, Jil­lian Page, Helena Pike & Sara Lewis.

Here we have dresses made by Sarah Bar­row, Heather Rogers, Ali­son Penno, Amanda Ran­dell & Di Marvell.

Here are dresses made by Peter Alan Bod­nar, Lucinda Knap­man, Lisa Fowler & Katy Coleman.

These are dresses made by Sharon Dower, Karen Massey & Ciara Quigley.

This clip shows the Best in Show win­ner Lisa Fowler’s flo­ral gown.

Here’s Caroline’s inter­view with Gold medal­list Sarah Barrow.
