Wow – what a year it has been. It seems surreal that it is coming to a close, but here we are! To be honest, if you asked us a few months ago if we’d be doing Mayesh Design Star in 2021, we wouldn’t have had an answer for you. This year brought many challenges and unknowns, and we really weren’t sure what we would be able to pull off. But, drumroll please… we’re excited to share that we are, indeed, continuing Mayesh Design Star next year! It is, however, going to look a little different this time, so let me give you a little background:
One silver lining of 2020, as I’m sure many would agree, is that it forced us to really reflect and to look at everything we do with a new perspective. When we sat down to discuss what we wanted Design Star to look like this year, we knew we needed something different and fresh, and that’s when it came to us.
Rewind to the middle of the first quarantine, when Carlsbad sales rep Valerie McNichols came to us with an idea for what is now known as Beautiful People of the Flower Industry. We realized we needed to do our part in shining a light on floral designers from all walks of life, and share their stories and floral journeys with the world. Our industry is made up of such a beautiful melting pot of people, and it only felt right to use our platform to highlight that. So off Val went, reaching out to designers and conducting Zoom interviews from her living room for us to share with you all.
