Fashion meets Flower • Yasemin Özeri
Yasemin Özeri, a passionate and renowned fashion designer in Istanbul, Turkey, dedicated a prominent space in her showroom and a page on her website to my last art book A Tribute to Flowers. One of the very best presentations and an honor for me. No wonder as Yasemin, her first name, represents the flower that symbolizes love, beauty, purity, and sensuality. Thank You so much, dear Yasemin!

“The infinite wealth of floristic masterpieces is evidence for the aesthetic creativity nature is capable of. Flowers are the reflections of the soul and are considered the measure of beauty. Every year numerous plant species become extinct without man ever having discovered them,”
says photographer Richard Fischer.
