The flower district is a place that makes me feel happy and inspired. It’s on West 28th Street, between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue but every year it seems to be shrinking. What I love about it is that it opens early in the morning and I’m a morning person. Living in the city, you don’t get many chances to see flowers and scenery. I like to buy flowers to make my own arrangements. When I’m doing bridal designs, I sometimes use floral motifs. Being in the environment of the flower market really puts me into my element.
