For anyone in Christchurch, New Zealand there is a wonderful exhibition of Jenny Gillies floral art to wear at the Botanic Gardens Kiosk Gallery until the end of June 2017. So if you hurry you can still see it.
I think even I could keep this vase of flowers alive.
Many hours could have been spent at the exhibition watching the video of Jenny's garments in stage performances. I miss seeing her performances at the Christchurch Cathedral as part of the Flower Festival. The garments were often worn by ballet dancers and they provided grace of movement that really suited the flowers.
The sunflower in the picture below was the first costume Jenny created and led to her over twenty year career in designing these floral garments.
It is a true visual feast with these garments featured in the exhibition.
The kiosk isn't very big but the round shape really suits how the garments are displayed. I took lots of photos here are three to give a feel for the exhibition.
Just love the Banana Passionfruit it really demonstrates Jenny's quirky risque sense of humour with the placement of the dangling bananas.
