World Cup competitors to collaborate at Auckland Flower Show

New Zealand floral designer Iain Stephens competed against Australian florist Mark Pampling at the 2004 Interflora World Cup of floral design. Now the two will work together on a huge floral display for the Auckland Flower Show.

Their exhibition will be a feature of the Professional Florists' Design Hall at the Auckland Flower Show. Measuring 8m x 4m in size, the design will align with this year's professional floral designers' competition theme of 'Fusion Flowers'.

Iain says that collaborating internationally over a floral design is not the biggest challenge, but filling such a large space will be. "It's going to big, bright and bold," he says.

Both designers are at the pinnacle of their sectors in their respective countries. Iain regularly created gold medal-winning designs for the Ellerslie Flower Show for many years, before becoming a judge of the show's professional floral design competition in more recent years. In Australia, Mark has won numerous state and national floristry titles, and was third in the Interflora Asia Pacific Floral Design Competition at this year's Melbourne Flower Show.

Entries for the professional florists' design competition at the Auckland Flower Show close on 12 September. The Auckland Flower Show takes place at Alexandra Park from 20-23 November 2008.
