“FLORALS, FOR SPRING? GROUNDBREAKING,” SAYS MIRANDA PRIESTLY IN THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA. WE’RE DELIVERING JUST THAT: ACCESSORIES BLOOMING BEFORE YOUR EYES.
WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY ELIZABETH HUEBSCH
Lewis Miller’s trademarked Flower Flashes pop up in the streets of Manhattan like a whimsical gift from Mother Nature. Miller and his studio produce massive installations for fashion shows and events that are often displayed for only a few hours. The next morning, they’ll take to the streets to give the blooms new life by transforming monuments, statues and even trash cans (shown above) into floral displays for the general public. Inspiring movements around the world, Flower Flashes celebrate the simple and pure gifts of nature.
