Victoria Whitelaw is enormously enthusiastic about passing on her knowledge and love of beautiful flowers to her students. Victoria’s passion for styling flowers began as a young girl working alongside her mother who was a florist herself. She then went on to own multiple stores of her own, and most recently opened the Victoria Whitelaw School of Flowers in Richmond. Victoria is extremely passionate about her craft, and over her 35 years in the industry has created her own extraordinarily elegant and individual style.
