The Flower Fever

Dior Couture Fall/Winter 2010

John Galliano for Christian Dior started off couture week with serious flower power. Galliano’s collection gave mother nature a run for her money, and he sent a vibrant bouquet of models down the runway (plastic wrapping included). As we drooled over the looks, we started to crave some flowers. And since we can afford flowers and not Dior Couture, we figured a bouquet was in order. But what to buy?

We know fashion not flowers. So we stopped by New York’s flower market district to check in with Superior Florists (828 Sixth Ave.). They’ve been in the same location since 1930, making it one of the oldest flower shops in the city. Superior Florists is a family biz, and the third generation, Stan Rosenberg, 72, runs the place today. These guys know their stuff.

We checked in with designer Jesus Rivera, who has worked at the shop for 19 years, to get his take on the collection.

“I think it’s pretty ingenious,” says Rivera. “Those dresses look close enough to the real thing.”

Look by look, Rivera identified the floral inspiration behind each piece.

So if you’re looking for a little Dior couture to take home – try some of these flowers.
