Florist who worked on Kate Moss' Bridal Bouquet, now in Singapore

 

Charlotte Puxley moved to Singapore from London just a year ago, but already has a brisk floral business going. The 28-year-old counts six upmarket restaurants (including Luke’s Oyster Bar and Divine Wine Extraordinaire at Parkview Square) as regular clients, in addition to orders for private parties and corporate events. Last month, she topped her list of achievements by setting up a studio in Tiong Bahru, Singapore.

Formerly part of the team at London florist Scarlet & Violet, which did Kate Moss’ wedding arrangements in 2011, Puxley is known for her romantic spin on the classic English garden look. Mixing what she calls “perfect” flowers (roses, carnations) with “trashier” flowers like hydrangeas and even shrubs like stachyurus praecox – rarely used by florists – her arrangements are wild yet elegant, as if she had just plucked them from the verdant British countryside. The approach also makes practical sense: combining fragile specimens like roses with hardier ones (the shrubs) helps the arrangements look fresh longer, she says.

To go with her brand of gentrified-gypsy chic, she uses mostly high-quality glass and ceramic vases that she sourced from antique markets in the UK and shipped over when she moved to Singapore last September. Revealing that she’s now looking into having her vases custom-made, she says: “Half the picture is in the vase. A good vase always inspires me.”
