Lisa Dickinson, owner of Manchester florist Venus Flowers, and her team of four florists spent over a week planning and working on a magnificent dress made entirely of flowers.
The blooming gown was worn by Boss Model Eleanor Davies during the opening of this year’s Dig the City festival.
Though she was a little daunted when the organizers of Dig City, Manchester's urban gardening festival asked her to create a unique garment, it became fun when she started planning.
Her challenge was how to keep the dress looking fresh for as long as possible, so she made use of flowers that wouldn’t wither and die after a few hours.
