This weekend marked the return of Flowers After Hours, an evening celebrating the Mia's Art in Bloom with champagne, floral fashion, and floral arrangements inspired by pieces in the permanent collection. We took a moment to chat with some revelers about their sartorial selections.

Where do you find style inspiration?

I tend to see one thing and imagine it paired with something else, and then build a vignette on that. I like to dress in whole outfits to tell a story with each look.

What’s your favorite flower?

It’s not really a flower, but I really love eucalyptus.
