Floral Artist Hikaru Seino Interview
Hikaru : I decorate people with flowers to create an era in which humans and nature can coexist more. Choose flowers to wear, just as you would choose clothes in everyday life.
By attracting the feelings of many people with the sight of people and nature as one, we want people to remember that they are also part of nature.
For me, clothing is a plant or material that has been transformed by human hands, but at its root it is no different from the plant itself. The clothes we usually wear are made of natural fibers. Even chemical fibers are made from substances that initially existed on this earth.
Stylish colors, pretty sunflowers from the back, sturdy beehives… Nature knows all the answers to cool, beautiful, and strong shapes. I believe that observing nature deeply is the quickest way to create the best designs.
