AIFD What Inspires You Contest Winners

The 2016 AIFD Symposium is coming up and we were excited to work with AIFD to award 3 Symposium education passes! We held a contest, inspired by this year’s theme “Inspire”, in which the participants selected something that inspired them and created a complimentary floral design. Thank you to all who participated!! Our 3 winners are Fabian Salcedo, Michael McCarthy, and Pamela Ball – congratulations!!


Fabian Salcedo


AIFD What Inspires You Contest Winners


“I wanted to make a mask, but I wanted it to feel alive and or growing over the face in some sense. I used flat cane lined with wire and wrapped in yarn as the frame. I liked the red and gold palette and that nod to an Asian aesthetic. As I was creating I began to envision a kind of futuristic floral cyborg. It was the combination of these three ideas that got me to this final product.”


Michael McCarthy


AIFD What Inspires You Contest Winners


“Nature and floral design go hand in hand. It is a prominent source for inspiration in many artists. From the source photo (Bridal Veil Falls II by Peter Ireland), my design was inspired by the movement and flow of the waterfall, the lush green burst of color, and the tension of rugged and smooth textures.”


Pamela Ball


AIFD What Inspires You Contest Winners


“My floral design is based on the enchanted forest. I love how nature and fashion come together to create another world. It is a world that captures the magic and beauty of flowers. A setting in a fantasy world in a fairy godmother’s magical workshop in the heart of the enchanted forest. A quiet place that the curious and adventurous search for, but only the one with the truest heart can see. Peak into this other world and allow peace and happiness to wash over you. Allow the magical scene to envelope you in pure imagination where magic truly exists.”
