Diane was the first original designer of silk flowers in the United States. The flowers in arrangements were introduced in 1968 by Sak’s Fifth Avenue. She was flower consultant to the European Furniture Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, also did custom work for Estee Lauder, the Revlon Co., The Frick Collection, Circle in the Square, The American Embassy in Moscow, The King of Morocco, The New York City Opera. The flowers were made in France and Japan. Knowledge of French facilitated working with the ateliers in Paris to accomplish the creation and design of flowers. In 1995 Diane Love silk flowers were reintroduced on QVC with special appearances by Diane Love. A video,The Art of Flower Arranging with Diane Love, was sold with each purchase of flowers.
“As if inspired by a Monet painting, Zack Brown’s set for Act I of the city Opera’s freshly mounted production of Verdi’s La Traviata brings in a touch of reality by letting our eyes feast on more than a thousand beautiful flowers…Never before in City Opera’s history have so many flowers graced the stage…Actually, they are all the creation of American designer, Diane Love.”
