If there’s one thing you should know about the Female Collective’s Aude Giraud, it is her creative eye for creating floral arrangements that have a romantic, French-European appeal (check out her website at Ask A French Flowers). With Christmas just around the corner, the 32-year-old florist has been busy conducting Christmas wreath workshops (there’s one coming up on Dec 17) and creating them for her clients (she single-handedly made 34 of them for Longchamp’s Spring Summer ’17 presentation two weeks ago).
The type of flowers and leaves that Giraud uses for her wreaths, which starts from $68 apiece, mainly compose of pine, statice, eucalyptus, cotton flowers, lavender and hollyberries. Her reasons? They’re not only long-lasting, but can be dried for decorative purposes too. We spent a day at Giraud’s hip Tiong Bahru home exploring ways to style a Christmas wreath creatively – watch this video to find out how.
