This Floral Couture piece features a mass of silk flowers meticulously stitched together on a base of leather, linens, sequins and faux fur.

I designed this Floral couture piece whilst isolated in the March floods of 2022.


Designed whilst isolated by the continuing flood waters.

As you know, I always design in fresh flowers. However this time Mother Nature decided not to give me that opportunity. Flooding me in, yet again.

My whole concept had to change just over a week out from the Show.

I cut up my cats house for the heavy wire. I raided my cupboard for clothes and chopped into furnishings. Finding all the Leathers, linens and faux fur I could to bring my vision to life.

This piece is fully lined and finished with meticulous details.

I treated the flowers to give them a leathery look.

And that was just the design element.

The model and I spent hours behind the scenes choreographing the character that had to be embodied to bring the piece to life.

Then there were the creative discussions with the photographer in regards to the capturing of the piece. Yes you know it, we did a side shoot!

Many many hours of stitching, weaving and crafting went into this piece.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we all enjoyed bringing it to life.

Michigan – USA

Adventure to America: Grand Rapids – Michigan

A Journey of Creativity to GLFEE 

As a floral artist, I have always been captivated by the boundless beauty of nature and the endless possibilities of artistic expression.

 When the opportunity arose to embark on an adventure to America for GLFEE – ‘The Great Lakes Floral Event Expo’ I knew that this would be the perfect chance to explore new landscapes, meet fellow artists, and immerse myself in the vibrant culture of the United States. 

Upon arriving in America, I was immediately struck by the sheer scale of the cities, Los Angeles was a wild urban jungle, however it was the variety of flora that I encountered that delighted me most! 

I knew straight away I wanted to create a piece of Floral Couture and capture in the Urban landscape. The thought of the contrast made my creative soul stir with excitement.

I was imagining Divine Garden Roses, set against hard cold concrete. 

Collaborating with Fellow Artists
I found a Photographer in the state of Michigan, whose style matched my vision perfectly! 

Next up came the selection of model. I needed someone just right, as she is the canvas from which I conceptualise the whole Flower gown around.

She is an essential part of the story. 

The collaboration took place Grand Rapids, Michigan State.

I teamed up with a talented photographer @intricate_exposures and model @itsnatrios to capture a piece of Floral Couture I designed on the Main Stage at the Grand Rapids Floral Event Expo.

A gown designed from Fresh Roses and Greenery. Decadent Floral headpiece.

A Fresh Flower gown! Created from a delightful mixture of Fresh Columbian Garden Roses, nestled in an abundance of Greenery!

I deconstructed the stage piece and reconstructed it on the streets of the city.

Excited to capture the Decadent floral gown against an urban landscape!

We ventured to the Steps of the Grand Rapids Art Gallery…and the magic was made.

As my adventure to America ended, I found myself filled with a sense of inspiration and creativity. The diverse landscapes, vibrant culture, and creative collaborations that I experienced during my journey have left an indelible mark on my artistic practice.

Runway - Julia Rose's Floral couture design features on the Runway in Indonesia - Fashion from Flowers and up cycled items
World Flower Summit – Indonesia

Here is a little bit of what we got up to when we recently headed over to the gorgeous tropical island of Bali, in Indonesia, for the 2019 World Flower Summit.
Each country was given a prop. A handmade item, utilised in day to day life by the Balinese people. 
We had to upcycle our given prop and work it into our design. 

Our prop was a beautiful woven fishing basket, it was almost a shame to reshape it as it would have made a fantastic lampshade! But I cut into it, weaving, and manipulating its form into a piece I could use as a base to design my fresh floral couture on. It was ready to attach flowers to! 

The next day I walked into the Westin with my transformed fishing basket in hand ready to adorn it with fresh flowers and bring my vision to life! Thanks to my awesome team powering down, we created a skirt, headpiece and shoulder throw…. all from one little fishing basket. 

Thank you to Wfc Indonesia for organising such a magnificent event! 
And, Thank you to Flormart for the simply stunning fresh flowers! 

Last but not least…..Thank you to the World Flower Council for giving us the opportunity to not only meet but also design alongside many international Master floral designers. We were truly inspired!

Colour My World Joy, Creativity, and a Life Surrounded by Flowers

From her earliest days, renowned floral designer Julia Rose has been inspired by
beauty, creativity and, yes, flowers. In “Colour My World,” Rose shares those passions
through her warm, often whimsical personal stories and glimpses behind the floral
design curtain.

Born in Australia, Rose fell in love with creativity and art early in her life and throughout
formative years of exploration, traipsing through rainforests, snorkelling the Great Barrier
Reef and strolling along golden beaches. She’s always loved to paint, weave, carve and
sculpt, but flowers became her medium of choice. 

Her lavish floral couture designs have taken over the world’s fashion runways, and her creative public floral installations have inspired joy in others, giving Rose the inspiration she thrives on to continually create.
“Colour My World” captures Julia Rose’s singular approach to floral design – both in
stunning images and sweetly told tales – and mixes it with a dash here and there of the
colorful, creative life she’s lived thus far. 

Its pages take you along Rose’s vibrant journey, from her early stomping grounds in Newcastle to worldwide fashion runways, red carpets and festivals and back to her bucolic farm in Australia, where she finds the inspiration to fuel her floral magic.
