Choy Gillette, Owner & Designer
Choy, a native of South Korea, grew up in downtown Pusan. Her extensive, almost 30-year history of study entails numerous reputable schools of design, including the Ikebana school, and the Hana art school.
Choy’s talents are not limited to Japanese design. She attended the North Carolina Certified Professional Florists Program in Southern Pines before opening her shop in 2003. Education, in combination with her desire to stay current with trends in the floral industry (through shows, trade conventions, symposiums, and most recently Hiatomi Gilliam’s course) are what set her apart.
Choy is a former member in the Blue Ridge Chapter of Ikebana, the Ikebana International of Asheville, and is a former member of NC State Florist Association. Mrs. Gillette currently resides in Asheville and is an accredited member of the local business community.
Choy has completed a Traditional Wedding workshop and completed an Advanced Technique for Contemporary High-Style and European Design. She has traveled extensively in Europe, working in many floral shops learning the art and artistry of European-style floral design. Her passion for traveling and her appreciation of different cultures allows her to produce unique events. Her signature design can bring you and your guests the color and spice of Marrakesch, the chic contemporary style of a downtown loft, the enchanting romance of Versailles, or the lush serenity of a bohemian garden.
