Trish Peng Fresh Flower Gown
in collaboration with the National Flower Promotions Group
New Zealand Fashion Week | New Zealand Weddings Show
Trish Peng made headlines at New Zealand Fashion Week earlier this year with a stunning
floral dress as her final piece. Lasting just three days out of water!
As the model floated down the catwalk, the air was perfumed with the heady scent of thousands of flowers and the guests then realise to their amazement that the entire dress is made from fresh New Zealand grown flowers.
Tiny white blooms contour a close-fitting bodice, then cascade into dramatically large blush and pale pink flowers at the train, entwined with rose gold foliage.
Senior floristry students from the Manukau Institute of Technology have spent more than 100 hours working with Trish to bring her vision alive. The gown features 12 different types of flowers, including carnations, hellebores, roses, chrysanthmums, and is a New Zealand first.
