The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York's premiere French cultural center, will present two evenings in November devoted to the art of flowers with renowned French floral designer, Olivier Giugni.
L’Olivier, the sleek floral design atelier on Manhattan’s West 14th Street is a long way from Brignoles, the Provençal village between St. Tropez and Aix en Provence where Olivier Giugni grew up. Yet the warmth, whimsy, style and bursts of color this floral artist brought from his native Southern France are unmistakable. His mantra: life is color and color is life. And Olivier has been adding sumptuous color and life to New York City, his adopted home, since 1986. Olivier opened his first boutique in 1994 on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, with the second, called L’Olivier Downtown, following in 2004 in Chelsea.
