Kilee Mariama Hughes began her career working as a fashion and beauty publicist in New York City after graduating from the University of Southern California. Following a decade of organizing events for Nike, L'Oreal, Net-A-Porter, Saks Fifth Avenue and Luxottica, she followed her love for flowers to train at the FlowerSchool New York, where she earned her Professional Floral Design certification.
Her passion for floristry was sparked during her childhood in California, where the outdoors played an integral part of her everyday life and her mother, a painter and designer, encouraged daily creativity at home.
Fast-forward to today, and Kilee applies the same creative thinking to her contemporary and sophisticated floral designs. Having honed her aesthetic in the world of fashion, her love for color, texture and composition are reflected through lush flowers and gorgeous textiles combined in a final product that is both sensual and evocative.
