‘Maverick florist’, not a bad job title, eh? We’re all about championing men who have an unorthodox approach to creativity, and Augustus Bloom might just be the only bloke in the world that has ever provoked an interest in foliage amongst us at Topman HQ.
We wanted to find out more about Gus, so we’ve given him the Topman Profiles treatment to learn what it’s like to be a man in the female-dominated world of floristry. Whilst we were at it, we realised Valentine’s Day was just around the corner so we commissioned our new favourite florist (never thought we’d say that) to create a bespoke installation for our Oxford Circus flagship store. Watch our film to find out more Augustus Bloom and view the creation of our spectacular Valentine’s window.
