A city with flowers
Walking through the streets of Polanco was a spectacle during FYJA Polanco en Flores which took place within the framework of the Festival Flores y Jardines FYJA. Dozens of shops, boutiques and restaurants in this colony decorated their facades, sideboards and interiors with the most spectacular flower arrangements.
The theme of this year was: The Colors of Mexico, designers and floral artists printed in their creations the colorful that characterizes our country.
The award-winning facades this year were:
- Creativity Award: Brunello Cuchinelli designed by Arquitectura Floral Arlette S.
- Distinction Award: Mont Blanc designed by Jerónimo Gaxiola
- Best Color Management Award: Palacio de Hierro designed by Punto y Aparte
- Visual Impact Award: Peyrlongue designed by Cote Jardín
- Audience Favorite Award: Salvatore Ferragamo designed by Teoría de Flores
Jon Wheatley, a member of the Royal Horticultural Society, which organises festivals in England such as the Chelsea Flower Show, was surprised by the work done during the recent edition.
Such was the spectacle generated by the creativity and colorful floral designs in shops, boutiques and restaurants, that on the last day of exhibition, Mazaryk closed to become a pedestrian street.
People from other colonies moved to Polanco to enjoy the floral show and many people literally “went for a walk”.
The success and quality achieved with FYJA Polanco in Flores can be compared to, and even surpasses, similar events around the world.
After this year’s show, you can’t miss the next edition.
