About Fleurs de Villes - FEMMES
World-renowned bespoke floral show, Fleurs de Villes, is thrilled to announce the launch of its very first public showing in Scotland, in partnership with St James Quarter – Edinburgh’s chicest retail destination.
The show is open to the public from Friday June 24th, exactly one year on since St James Quarter opened its doors, when guests will be able to tour the self-guided exhibit until Sunday, July 3rd.
Designed as a must-see 10-day cultural event, stylish mannequins designed by some of the top florists in Edinburgh will take center stage captivating audiences with their storytelling.
The FEMMES exhibition will showcase a series of fresh floral mannequins celebrating remarkable women around the world. It will partner with local floral talent who will create these floral tributes based on an inspirational photograph or painting of each woman. Fleurs de Villes is proud to be working with local florists in order to create these illustrious designs and is delighted to be able to offer these artists a platform of creativity within St James Quarter to further showcase their talent.
Be it Scottish monarch Mary Queen of Scots, superstar and activist Annie Lennox or trailblazing actress and Strictly Come Dancing star Rose Lucinda Ayling-Ellis, audiences of all ages, cultures and genders will be able to learn more about these fascinating women through interactive displays. Images and QR codes on the floral sculptures will link to immersive profiles of each woman highlighting their cultural and historical significance.
