CREATIVE DIRECTION

WALTER VERMUELEN

Walter Vermuelen is the Creative Director for Dianthus Miami, and is also a Master Florist, the highest distinction attainable in the world of floral artistry. His pride in the Dutch heritage of Dianthus is present when he speaks about the distinctions in the European style of floral arrangement: “I think the European style is more modern, more upfront… we are ahead [in] designing.”

He also points out that other companies will oftentimes rehash the same arrangements for different settings, and this is not their approach. “You cannot just… that’s how a lot of florists work, they just have an arrangement and they place it everywhere!” he exclaims. “You have to see the color theme of the ship, you have to see the materials they use, and then you go from there.”
