A great deal of creativity goes into the making of a “floral dress”. And as we learn from talented floral designers Natalia & Tatiana, keen attention to detail is important in undertaking the process. Recently, Natalia and her team of five created a beautiful floral dress using top quality Red Naomi roses from Porta Nova. It took five straight hours and 500 stems of 70cm Porta Nova Red Naomi roses.
“Production of a floral dress is a creative process that requires different professional techniques of working with natural flowers. It is important to take into account the individual characteristics of different flowers, and their resistance, climatic features of the place where the event takes place (air temperature, humidity, season),” says Natalia.
“All these factors may affect the duration for which the flowers remain fresh,”
Natalia and Tatiana of TRIDVORNOVA art-bureau created the beautiful Red Naomi dress at Villa et Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild

First you have to prepare the material for the “Glamelia” of roses. You prepare the petals of a rose by cutting off the base of each petal. Prepare paper circles of different diameters (15,20,25 cm) You need to make 40 pieces of each diameter.
Cover the circles by two-sided adhesive tape. Peel off the protective layer from the double-sided tape and make “Glamelia” from large petals on the outside.
“When the “Glamelia” is ready we treat it by spray “Oasis Finish Touch” and place into a cold chamber.”
To prepare the corset, Natalia covers it by two-sided adhesive tape. The tape is added in overlapping strips. Then she peels off the protective layer from the double-sided tape and covers the corset by the petals. Finished corset is treated by “Oasis Finish Touch” spray and put into a cold chamber.
“We decorate the skirt with bigger Glamelias at the bottom and smaller Glamelias at the top. Each Glamelia is stuck on to the textile to a paper side using a special glue gun. If you wish, you can include additional accessories to compliment the design.”
