Inspiration from EMC designers

2022 trends interpreted in winter designs

As the end of 2022 approaches we celebrate the diversity and the beauty of individuality in floral design, as this blog dives into winter as a source of inspiration, with four amazing EMC designers from Israel, China, Lithuania and Mexico. Each design follows one of the 2022 trends and showcases the talent of each designer, their unique approach and their vision. It's one of the great, amazing things about our community, which we love to showcase and allow ourselves to be amazed by. Following a personal path to self discovery and setting up the premises to allow yourself to find the way you want to express yourself through flowers is a purpose of the EMC program in itself. 

"I live in a village, which is surrounded by a beautiful nature. The forests and farmlands near my house exposes me to many wonderful botanicals varieties. It is a pure connection to nature on a daily basis as a way of life. It excite me to watch the evolutionary process of the nature and its botanical materials. Each botanical material has his own characteristics and I have the honour to give them a new life in my designs - new life cycle in all its glory. The deep connection to nature and the high importance of keeping the environment, leads me to work with friendly natural materials. The design I have created combine materials I have collected in nature and from my garden. It combine fresh and dry botanical materials. Unrefined and rough, sustainable and reusable and environmentally friendly to showcase a different visual impact when interpreting a specific trend, where my country's natural specificities are being showcased." Orit Hertz, EMC

Orit Hertz is a floral artist who lives in the magical land of Israel. She has an amazing ability to blend in soulful stories in her designs. Her quest for authenticity and love of all things nature, translate into exquisite floral compositions that are full of emotion. Consciously creating artful displays, integrating unique materials and using Nature as a source of inspiration, she seems to be able to access a universe of infinite design possibilities. There is a sense of a seamless transition of elements that complement the intricately crafted, intriguing structures of a signature style design by Orit Hertz.

 "The beauty of a trend colour palette lies in the unicity of each colour in itself. The story of a trends mood board is not only about the whole, but also about the possibilities each element offers. Trends inspiration allows us to choose one colour element of this gorgeous and permissive trend and still showcase the spirit of it in a monochromatic approach!. Winter offers such a great spectrum of inspiration that relates to culture, emotions, environment, traditions and so many other factors that evolve inside a design, as a form of expression. The personal approach to all these factors is what makes a design different and it is also what makes interpreting trends still resonate as a unique artistic endeavour." ShuoTong Yang, EMC

Shuotong Yang EMC is a fantastic designer based in China, who has graduated from the European Master Certification in 2019. Her designs offer a great source of inspiration to many other fellow designers in her country and her unique approach to floristry shows in all her work. Particularly preoccupied in experimenting with different and unusual materials, Shuotong Yang is not afraid to explore creative combinations of botanicals and carefully executed constructions, always revealing a little bit of herself in the final outcome. 

"Interpreting a trend is always a question of being truthful to your personal interpretation and as floral designer this is very important as it helps keeping your signature style alive in every creation. My designs always feature a story of textures blended harmoniously and I find great joy in playing with layers of elements, creating seamless transitions. The "gentle caress' trend is full of feminine design elements and by adding some rough textures to my design I have put a little more tension in a rather soothing design. The winter textures take over and create soft atmosphere that speaks of kindness, calm and love, just as winter seems to always be that time of the year when things get magically surrounded by good vibes among people you love." Kristina Rimiene, EMC


Kristina RimienÄ—, EMC is one very talented designer and a lady with an amazing personality, She lives in Lithuania and besides owning a flower shop, designing gorgeous events and organising a unique floral festival in her country, Kristina is also quite known to the Lithuanian public as the host of a famous television show. Her designs have been featured in magazines and she has been a quest of Fleuramour for the past editions, presenting beautiful creations that introduce the notion of movement in the floral design. 

"Winter is the most interesting season of the year, because it has on one hand, the snow with it’s marvellous flakes but cold, and on the other, a welcoming atmosphere with joy, hope, dreams, thrill, blessings; this two elements melt together in this season, like the snowflakes, to make a whole that everybody awaits with excitement." Edith Guzmán Díaz, EMC

Edith Guzmán Díaz EMC lives in Mexico City, Mexico. Her childhood was spent in the countryside, in connection with nature. Edith describes her style as modern minimalist. For Edith, the internal energy of things is most inspiring; especially nature, aesthetics and art and less is always more. Her favourite techniques are anything with wire, especially when involving fabrics. As she approaches a project, Edith analyses her client’s needs and determines what to develop for demonstrations or courses. Next, she visualises, sketches, plans, researches and studies the best elements to use to extract the best elements of everything in challenging designs. Her projects evoke the essence and emotion of her vision through her careful attention to detail. She routinely reflects on the effectiveness and perception of her work.
