From the Flower - Our name is an expression of how flowers move an audience, inspired by the same way a painting or the sound of music makes someone feel. Every De La Flore creations is expressed by the movement of how flowers grow in the wild, using textures, shapes, and arranging them in a natural form. We choose a wide selection of colours in different shades that complement both dark and light colours together. We value the quality and types of blooms we use in all of our designs, choosing in season and by natural colours.
- Designer & Owner -
Estefani Alvarenga - Was brought up artistically by her father, who was an artist and a musician. He introduced music and art into the lives of his children at a young age. He would encourage them to learn how to play an instrument and inspire them to open their minds to creative thinking. Having an upbringing of such love for art, Estefani was taught, by her farther how to play different kinds of instruments, such as the piano, flute, and guitar. Even though music was kept in her life, Estefani would translate her creativity and imagination not through music, but by sketching and painting.
After graduating as a Make-up Artist, and working in the field for a few years, Estefani decided to go back to art school, to pursue a different area in art. However, in 2011, Estefani landed a job in floristry, where she first learned basic skills of the industry. Flowers had opened her eyes and took her to a beautiful place in her artistic imagination. Like her paintings, she was able to play with colours and manipulate the extent of her designs, this led Estefani to pursue a career that brings both her two passions of art and life together.
