Atlanta's Phipps Plaza to Blossom into a Floral Fantasy With 'Fleurs de Villes ARTISTE' DebutSource: Google Street View

The concrete corridors of Phipps Plaza are set to transform into a verdant vista as Fleurs de Villes ARTISTE descends onto Atlanta for its first ever appearance at the luxury shopping complex, swathing the space in nature's finest from May 17 through May 22. The noted global flower show will flaunt twelve show-stopping floral mannequins inspired by legendary artists, designed by Atlanta's cream of the crop floral designers, all woven together with the freshest of petals supplied by Kennicott Atlanta, as reported by FOX5 Atlanta.

For the love of flora and artistry, those wandering the halls of Phipps Plaza during this six-day spectacle, according to Patch.com, can feast their eyes on creations by Each Day Florals, Flaura Botanica, and Fresh Structures Floral Design, among others and for those seeking more than visual treats; there will be floral demonstrations and a pop-up flower market on May 18 to sate the appetite for all things horticultural.

Adding a dash of elegance to the event, it's been revealed that renowned purveyor of red-soled luxury, Christian Louboutin, is slated to inaugurate the festivities with a grand opening complete with a live DJ and light bites. Not to be outdone, other high-end retailers like Zimmerman and Jimmy Choo will curate floral-themed in-store happenings, while the recently inaugurated Nobu Hotel Atlanta is joining the fray with Japanese art-inspired mannequins and a spring cocktail tutorial to boot.

In a nod to consumer engagement, the exhibition invites visitors to cast votes for their preferred mannequin, dangling the enticing carrot of a lavish stay at Nobu Hotel Atlanta as the prize, backed by the spectacle of Phipps Plaza morphing into an ephemeral floral fantasy, just as other metropolises have witnessed in Fleurs de Villes' global cavalcade, ensuring a week drenched in floral beauty and rampant inspiration to entertain, amaze and inspire anyone with an eye for the extraordinary and an appreciation for natural aesthetics.
