Lisa King’s experimentation with flowers and inks started out as a tribute to someone she lost. She would regularly visit the flower markets of London and her native Bangkok, buying and experimenting with flowers as a way of honouring them, which then developed into prints across her coveted scarf collections.
Lisa and London Flower School launched their first collaborative collection with an exhibition at this year’s London Design Festival. Taking over a 400 sq. metre disused church in Copeland Park in Peckham, South London, the exhibition showcased the process of the creative journey, culminating in a large-scale flower and print installation.
The art prints and products in this exhibition were made through a collaborative process between Lisa King and the entire team at London Flower School. London Flower School’s vision has always been to push the boundaries of floristry as an art form, and to nurture new voices in the industry.By manipulating, deconstructing and rearranging flowers, King and LFS explore and question the human definition of beauty, and quest for perfection in creative design. The final result of this collaboration culminates with In Perfect Process: with floral pattern designs by Lisa King and arrangements created by the LFS team, all photographed by LFS in-house photographer Marcelo Deguchi.
Silk fabrics are printed in Worcestershire and the products made in London, not far from the home of LFS and Lisa King’s studio in London.
