Lily's flowers story is also a story of meetings and friendships. She met Delphine Manivet who asked her to flower her showrooms and events, she initiated Lily to her bohemian atmosphere and the wedding sphere. One day, a bride who knew Lily's skills, ask her to make a hairpiece with the end cutting and scraps of her dress. Ever since, Lily shapes some bridal hairpieces in word-of-mouth referrals.
The Galeries Lafayette Haussmann were the first to trust her by offering her a store window to expose her work during several months. It's the declic. However, it's the meeting with Rime Arodaky who gave her the momemtum, Rime offers her to express fully her creatve freedom during the fashion shows and campaigns since 2012.

She learns French tradiional handcraft techniques at Mátiers d'Art to nourish her knowledge and studies fashion design at Studio Berçot in Paris. In 2016, she's honoured to be included among the designers of the guidebook Made in Paris meeting the criteria of French Savoir-Faire and to be invited to expose her work at Made In Paris exhibition by the city of Paris.
Yes to creativity and style but with love and an environmentally friendly process. Her lifestyle as well as her work reflects perfectly her positive attitude and her love for sharing. Since the beginning, Lily adopts an environmental chart and privilege the buying of seasonal flowers and the responsible purchasing. We exclusively work with local productors called Ile de France who cultivate around Paris their seasonal plants. It allows us to reduce the impact on the environment from the long-distance transport and the energy consumption of the green houses in out of season.

The seasonal flowers are more qualitative because they didn't suffer the bad condition from the forced cultivation. We don't stock any flowers and don't want a cold-room. We only do some custom work and wish our flowers arriving to you directly from the grower. It's the garantee of the freshness of our flowers that we order especially for you, they are cutted on the eve and delivered directly to you.
