The world’s most famous flower show is back, on May 21st to 25th. The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is held by the Royal Horticultural Society in the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Chelsea, London. This quintessentially British event hopes to inspire everyone to grow.
Every year the grounds of the Royal Hospital in Chelsea are transformed into show gardens and vibrant displays. The show has become an important venue for watching emerging gardening trends. New plants are launched each year and it is often described as the garden design equivalent of Fashion Week.
This year the non-profit organisation CAMFED, who support the education of women and girls in Africa are bringing Zimbabwe to Chelsea with their African inspired garden to raise awareness of their campaign to give girls in Africa a space to grow.
There will also be gardens inspired by topical issues such as sustainability and climate change while others have been inspired by various locations such as Australian beaches and the city of Yorkshire.
The RHS Chelsea Flower Show also offers innovative dining, over 80 exhibitors from all across the UK and late night entertainment.
How to dress the part
Our favourites include; Koryl, a flattering feminine shoe that is much roomier than it looks. The beautiful fabrics, combined with an adjustable leather-look strap and button detail brings a touch of glamour to any outfit. This style is called English Rose which is a beautiful option for a spring day out. The stiffened heel area ensures a comfortable and supportive fit around the heel, perfect for walking around the flower show.
The Sammi in Chambray Blue might be the shoe for you. A cool, supportive casual that looks great with any outfit. This lightweight, summer casual is made of a cotton-mix fabric with support around the heel and the lace can adjust to fit over a swollen instep.
Another favourite for day to night chic, is our NEW Salsa sandal, shown here in Soft Blue Floral. This comfy and secure sandal is great for special occasions. The pretty false buckle disguises a touch-fastening strap which adjusts to fit a range of swelling.
If walking can be a challenge, we may have something perfect for you in our Walking & Exercise collection that can make an event like this easier and more enjoyable for you.
If you’re attending the most glamourous day out in the gardening calendar, we wish you a wonderful time!
