To celebrate British Flowers Week this year we look at some of the people behind beautiful British flowers, foliage and plants in the UK.
In our second video interview of the week Simon Lycett chats with Mairead Curtin and Athena Duncan of Rebel Rebel all about the Flower Market, their love of colour and their long history with British Flowers Week.
About Rebel Rebel
Mairead and Athena founded Rebel Rebel in 2000, celebrating 20 years this year. Since then they have grown to be one of London’s most exciting florists. With the help of their highly talented team of florists, they have built Rebel Rebel into a successful and award winning business, and become one of London’s premiere florists, designing weddings and creating floral designs for some of the world’s most prestigious clients and brands. They also have a flower shop in Mare Street Market.
They are dedicated New Covent Garden Flower Market customers and lovers of British flowers and foliage. Rebel Rebel took part in the very first British Flowers Week back in 2013 when the heading image was taken.
