2018 International Designer of the Year Entries

Compared to many international floral design competitions, the Fusion Flowers International Designer of the Year competition is one of a very few that actually is open and welcoming to any and all designers confident enough to enter. This is one of the greatest reason’s that this competition finds and polarizes some of the greatest floral designers of our time, all from their own, self entered design skill merit. 

Some of the most dreaded words for any competitor when receiving their results are “Unfortunately, the judges felt that this year your designs did not merit an award.” and those would be the exact results for our four submissions into the 2018 Fusion Flowers International Designer of the Year.

I allowed myself one half day of eating candy, moping around and feeling less than great but there is always the next competition, the next presentation and always the next design. With co-sponsoring and co-presenting a Great Lakes Floral and Event main-stage show and preparing for this years lineup of competitions and floral adventures, how can you let yourself get down with soo much opportunity and promise for 2019.

Looking back at 2018 with so many amazing results not only across close to twenty floral design competitions but also traveling and seeing even more of the floral industry across the world, it’s been a remarkable year. As I try my very best to catch you all up on the last year and a half of floral adventures in upcoming blogs and videos, here are our submissions for you to enjoy from the 2018 Fusion Flowers International Designer of the Year competition with categories, personal titles, and all the shabam!
