flor et. al is an advanced contemporary eveningwear collection created in New York City by a team of international designers who find inspiration in their personal backgrounds and cultures.
The collection’s name, derived from the words “Flor”, Spanish for flower and “et al”, the abbreviation of the Latin word et alia, which means “and others” is an acknowledgement that our beauty is the consequence to all that flourishes around us. Based on this foundation, flor et.al seeks to give women an unconventional, feminine, fun alternative to traditional eveningwear.
Motivated by a global perception of beauty, flor et. al collaborates with artisans around the world to find the vintage hand painted artwork for their prints and as well as working with small artisans in India to create the hand beaded floral designs to pair back to the collection. flor et. al has partnered with NEST, a non-profit that connects artisans and designers all over the globe.
