Brisbane Arcade will bloom into the new season with its third annual Spring Flower Show.

This year’s theme, The Enchanted Forest, will see the Arcade become overgrown with enchanting fern-heavy arbours with vibrant flowers, a giant mystical rabbit, a forest canopy of twisted branches and blossom, colourful mushrooms, a magical faraway tree, mystic flower arch, cabinet displays and blocks of floral colour.

Installed over two nights with an estimated 100 hours of manpower, the Spring Flower Show will bring together 300 branches of blossom, five species of orchids, hundreds of roses grown locally and in Colombia, 168 kilograms of fresh moss, 800 branches of willow and magnolia and kilograms of native Queensland greens.

There are a lot of flowers involved, is what we’re saying.

The week-long Flower Show will kick off with an opening night fashion runway show, the Brisbane Arcade Spring Collection, that will see Brisbane Arcade’s fashion and jewellery designers and retailers take to a runway under the stars in the Queen Street Mall, followed by a decadent cocktail party inside Brisbane Arcade and amongst the flower installations.

Darb Couture, Indepal Leather, Irma J Smith House of Fashion, Keri Craig Emporium, Maiocchi, Pia du Pradal, Tengdahl Australia, Bradley Fine Jewellery, Robert White Jewellers and Stephen Dibb Jewellery will present their Spring collections during this enchanting night of flowers, fashion and glamour.

Brisbane Arcade’s Spring Flower Show, featuring giant fresh floral art installations, will run from 1 to 7 September at 160 Queen Street, Brisbane. Entry is free.

The Brisbane Arcade Spring Collection fashion runway show and cocktail party will be held on Thursday 1 September at 160 Queen Street, Brisbane. This is a ticketed event; tickets are available now at brisbanetickets.com.au.
