What makes India so special to you?
First of all the ‘colorful’ people. Their richness of culture and unseen craftsmanship. And the attitude to succeed.  The wedding culture in India is amazing. Just look at the rituals! How can somebody not be in love with this incredible country? For my first project, I had to research about the wedding rituals in India and the do's and don'ts.  It opened my horizon as a person but for sure also as a designer. The magnitude of it, the vision behind it. The approach of their events is dazzling.
We have seen Tomas is doing a lot of premium events in India.  The last one was for the Ambani family. A family that is in the top 10 richest families in the world.
Tomas’ involvement in floral design in India has grown in the past few years. His presence in the premium market is well recognized.  High profile companies and families are hiring him for their weddings and events. According to Tomas, India is a country with many possibilities in which you will be immerged in the stunning scenery and beautiful venues. Those challenges are a gift to him and he is grateful to be involved in it. Over the last four years, he has developed a strong and trustworthy relationship with his Indian partners such as event companies, scenography companies, and more.
India is a country of giving and taking, always on the move for new and different things. It is also a country of collaborations and craftsmanships, in search to achieve the impossible and meet the high expectations of the clients.
It’s about working in confidence and with respect. A country with a strong belief that anything is possible to create that kind of floral magic where we (in Europe) can only dream off. Tomas de Bruyne indian floral design collage

Grow Together
As a European designer in India, Tomas believes it is of importance to grow together. Each collaboration needs to have the same goal; serving the client at its best. Going for that extra mile. People in India thrive to be happy, which is deeply rooted in their religion. Their brilliant and vibrant bright color choices show us just how energetic their approach at life is. It represents the happiness that we search for our summer 2020 floral trends, you can really see these colors popping up everywhere.
This is What Top Service in India Entails
A couple of years ago, the national television of Belgium followed Tomas on one of his trips to India. This program elaborated on what top service in India entails. It resulted in a great documentary of how he and his team combined the artistic - creative- and rational way of thinking into conjunctively bringing a challenging project to a perfect result.
