With flowers in reach, a florist can transform into an installation artist, space creator, and performance artist. Since May is the month of flowers, we invited Korea's first-generation florist Julia Kim Young-ju, the CEO of Piverdie Korea, a French floral art school.
For the past few years, Julia Kim Young-ju has been active both in Europe and the U.S. Starting as a senior florist at the JW Marriott Hotel, she received recognition for her flower decorations at several international events such as the APEC Summit 2005, World Energy Congress 2013, and World Water Forum 2015.
She was selected as one of the 30 best florists in the world in 2015 for her works which received recognition abroad before they did in Korea. Besides, in 2017, she became the first Korean to earn the membership of the Society of American Florists.
CEO Julia Kim Young-ju, who promotes Korea with flowers on the world stage, unfolds her stories on Heart-to-Heart.
