FlowerSchool is thrilled to welcome LaParis Phillips to our roster of FlowerSchool Master Florists. As the host of this season’s autumn master class series, he will be bringing a contemporary approach to classic florals.
LaParis Phillips is a St. Louis native and has lived in NYC for over 10 years. Her love of flowers and creating started at her family’s balloon shop, Balloons Unlimited. Although she worked mostly with balloons she was always interested in flowers. With the desire to learn another skill while studying Fashion Marketing, she decided to work at a flower shop. This is where she would learn the foundation of floristry and the inner workings of the flower business.
In 2015, LaParis started Brooklyn Blooms in her BedStuy apartment with the desire to fill the void in the events industry with her funky and bold style. Since then she has designed on Caribbean beaches, landed national campaigns, created for countless weddings and events, and fulfilled thousands of daily orders. She has recently expanded, opening a larger location on Fulton Ave. in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood.
