What is the most typical thing about Valentine’s Day? The roses, you are right. And here is something you don’t hear or see every year. This is a horti-couture red gown created by Joe Massie, 23. It took the three-time winner of the RHS Chelsea Young Florist of the Year award 170 hours using 1,725 Valentine’s Day flowers from Asda. It consists of petals from 1,000 Naomi red roses, 15 Carmen roses and 200 chrysanthemums and decorated with gold-leaf as well as petals from 150 Purple Power roses, 75 gerberas and 300 carnations.
The gown was inspired by a masterpiece modelled by Yasmin Le Bon at Paris Fashion Week. The gown is complimented by a pair of rose petal-covered stiletto shoes.
