Steampunk is in the fashion forefront. Although its beginnings were in the 1980’s it has reached a strong presence in 2012. The influence of steampunk can be seen in many aspects of art, fashion and design. Based on the Victorian perspective on fashion, steampunk is a fusion of science fiction, fantasy and technology. Steampunk design emphasizes a balance between tool and decoration.

As a florist, this genre excites me. Although it is a style that has been around for more than thirty years, it has not broken into the floral industry. The organic and natural aspect of flowers infused with the rigidity of mechanics and technology seems like an odd combination. As a floral designer I have always embraced the challenge of combining unlikely elements to create an artful piece. The newly launched web store at purplefreesiadesigns.com features the beginnings of my steampunk accessories for wedding floral design. The steampunk bouquet jewelry collection at Purplefreesia Designs presents functional gadgets with a fanciful twist.
