In anticipation of Spring, I wanted to bring floral fabrics to life for our readers. To put my vision in action I needed to find the perfect floral textiles, a knowledgeable floral designer and photographer Peter Vitale to capture it all. The floral patterns were selected and I called on Dallas’ Kyle Branch to create complementary arrangements to accompany each fabric. Kyle, whose company name is PEACHES, caught my attention for his sculptural compositions and unconventional crafting of floral art. This collaboration required several meetings and advance planning as the fabrics were interpreted and arrangements sourced. Kyle arrived the day of the shoot with a bounty of fresh blooms and greens to work with. Each scene was designed and photographed with precision. My vision was realized.
