THE FRENCH PETAL
A little beehive with a nice creative buzz. Bonjour, my name is Estelle. Growing up on a farm in France, I spent much of my childhood outdoors exploring forest and bushes, collecting treasure made up of sticks, berries, moss… My grandparents had a large and lush garden, a mix of vegetables and flowers, which taught me the beauty of the changing seasons and picked my interest for texture and foliage. I studied floristry in Paris, then started travelling to nourish my style with different influences and cultures.
