Inspired by other global floral celebrations, L.E.A.F is New York City’s first-ever contemporary festival of flowers that gives residents a chance to enjoy the beauty of nature and floral designers an opportunity to turn the city into a riot of color and scent during #NYFlowerWeek
“In a city with an abundance of great floral design and designers, we wanted to create a moment in time to showcase the industry. We are particularly excited about the take–over in the Meatpacking District,” says L.E.A.F Founder Moira Breslin
The L.E.A.F flower festival offers a platform for all floral designers to showcase their craft in various ways, from ticketed events and pop-up gardens to street installations and epicurean experiences. This year’s event, scheduled from June 8-14, includes floral installations throughout the week across specific Department of Trans-portation plazas, store window floral displays and pockets of guerrilla flower bombing – made famous by the “Flower Flash” pop-ups from Lewis Miller, of Lewis Miller Design.
On June 13 and 14, L.E.A.F will take over the Meatpacking District, at Gansevoort Plaza, Chelsea Triangle and 14th Street Park, to showcase stunning displays by local florists, in-store retail installations and a European-style floral market selling arrangements and fresh cut flowers.
