Day One - Designs using British Larkspur by Zita Elze

The work of Brazilian born Zita Elze is imbued with emotion, romance and an ethereal beauty. There is a painstaking attention to the fine, intricate details, and a true sense of the emotion that has been invested in its creation. British flowers become works of art in the hands of Zita Elze.

“Shadows”

British flowers meet haute couture in this exquisite dress. The fitted bodice made with individual flowerheads of larkspur, clematis, delphinium, nepeta, astrantia, nigella and cornflowers interspersed with jewels leads down to a flowing skirt of cascading larkspur stems.

Painting with Flowers

An artist’s garden in a vase, this design is brimming with textural detail. The base itself is decorated with tiny dried scabious pods softened by trailing moss and briza. The vase erupts into a fountain of grasses, towering stems of larkspur, delphinium, salvias, scabious, nepeta, cornflower, and ox-eye daisies.
