Bruno Duarte is the owner and creative director of Fresh Florals in Toronto, Canada.
From the mountains to the markets, Bruno grew up surrounded by flowers on his family's farm in Madeira. This island paradise off the coast of Morocco is known as the floating garden and is home to rare species of flowers from around the world. It's here where Bruno's passion for orchids and all things floral began.
Much like his Belgian contemporaries, Bruno's approach to floral design is both sculptural and emotional, blending organic materials and found objects together to create works of art. His floral studio in Toronto is often mistaken for an art gallery, where weekly window displays are created to showcase his artistry.
His exceptional craftsmanship and innovative design techniques have captured the attention of socialites and A-list celebrities in Canada as well as international glitterati like Rene Zellweger, Patti LaBelle and Sir Elton John.
When Bruno's not at his studio he can be found designing in front of a live audience. He frequently appears on local and national television programs, and gives floral demonstrations at Home and Garden shows. He is also a regular contributor to magazines in Australia, Canada and the United States, where his seasonal decor and wedding work are prominently featured.
