As a feature sponsor for Fashion Week Columbus in Ohio, Dümmen Orange North America made a statement with its flower genetics in the spotlight. This was the first time Dümmen Orange partnered with Fashion Week Columbus in its 2015 events, held the week of October 3-10, 2015.

Fashion Week Columbus is a non-profit organization showcasing local and emerging fashion designers while providing scholarships to fashion design students. Each year, Fashion Week Columbus hosts a week of fashion-related events to feature local talent in the Columbus, Ohio area.

“A leader in the floriculture industry, Dümmen Orange is committed to breeding, distributing and promoting superior flower genetics,” says Dümmen Orange Operations Manager Kate Santos. “To do this, we strive to be in touch with contemporaries in the lifestyle industries. A large focus of this mission is to translate trends from fashion.”

With more than 500 working fashion designers in the Columbus market, Ohio’s capital is ranked third among major U.S. cities in the fashion industry. Partnering with Fashion Week Columbus to sponsor the High Tea, Wedding Runway and Finale Runway shows was an opportunity for Dümmen Orange, with its North American headquarters located in Columbus, Ohio, to support the local community and introduce the city to its business.

From gorgeous bridal bouquets of elegant roses, gerberas and anthuriums to avant-garde displays of unique floral jewelry and model headpieces, the pairing of Dümmen Orange flowers with exclusive designer collections at these three fashion events brought new life to fashion, resulting in a showcase of innovative trends and inspiring design.

Don’t Let Your New Year’s Resolutions Fade Away in 2018

Stuff got real in 2017, and it caused many of us to stop and reflect on the current state of the world, and how we can impact change — or at least improve our own situations. Life is too short, and we work too hard, to not use the annual renewal as an opportunity to take stock of our own personal lives, businesses, and careers, and make the necessary adjustments that will allow us to work smarter and live better. Even if you have already given up on your resolutions, perhaps you can think of January as a trial month and make February the month when you really get to work on your goals. And while I know it’s a difficult month to start on some of these changes, since you’re already immersed in the busy spring season, I promise that if you take some time to evaluate your reality […]
