Bruno Duarte's initiation into floral design began with a temporary job at a floral shop to fill the time between high school and college. Looking through books on the subject, the light bulb went off when he came across the work of Belgian designers like Daniel Ost. "I was amazed to realize this can be an art form  — and I could go to school for it and make it a career!"
