Living Floral Fashion Accessories by Althea Wiles at Influencers Who Brunch

Althea Wiles, creative director for Rose of Sharon Floral Design Studio and florist educator for J Althea Creative, recently participated in the Influencers Who Brunch campaign in Little Rock, Arkansas.  Each participating influencer received a custom piece of floral jewelry at the brunch from Wiles created with their individual social media fashion and style in mind. Mary Kate Whitmire with Chic Little Honey and Alisha Curtis with Style in the Rock received dainty floral bracelets, while Sarah Jo Reynolds with XOXO Sarah Jo and Karen Alejandre with Kay P Beauty XO were given floral statement piece necklaces. Each gift was carefully wrapped and delivered by Althea Wiles during the brunch photoshoot.

“I have been consistently inspired by the design tutorials produced by Passionflower Sue.  For this series created for the Influencers Who Brunch campaign, we used chrysanthemums, protea, mimosa, hyacinth, hypericum berries, scabiosa, astrantia, spray roses, ranunculus, anemones, and parrot tulips. The pieces turned out cheerful and vibrant just like the campaign and team involved,” says Althea Wiles. 

“Althea’s living floral accessories are always a big hit.  She can create necklaces, rings, earrings, hair accessories, handbag adornments, ascots and so much more.  Her latest pieces for Influencers Who Brunch were beautiful, wearable and attainable for the everyday woman,” says Meredith Corning, PR agent for Althea Wiles.

By nature, these unique pieces are eco-friendly, especially when used in conjunction with local flower farms.  Althea Wiles has developed long-standing relationships with the farmers in her area and encourages the use of locally-sourced resources, whenever possible.  Wiles’ extensive knowledge of flowers and flower substitutions is a bonus for eco-conscious consumers who don’t want to sacrifice style for their buying standards. Wiles continues to educate her florist education clients on how to become a florist, manage the business of floral design and teach florists how to incorporate sustainable practices in their own systems.
