The first half of the week, I am a visual merchandiser and buyer for a children’s boutique. Then the second half, I am working out of my house for my event floral business, Queen City Blooms. My neighbor and I have been business partners for the past 5 years and we cater towards wedding florals and small events. All of my days are different! Every day is full and being a wedding florist, my months book up to a year in advance, so I try to enjoy each day even in all the chaos.
My name is Chloé; I’m based in Brooklyn and work as the Director of Creative Services in an industrial design studio located in Soho (atlason.com). I’ve always enjoyed working alongside creatives, and during the pandemic, launched a small online platform to celebrate the work of emerging creators (accessibleobjects.com) with my talented friend Sophia, who built the entire website. Moments that characterize my day-to-day are my bike commutes over the Williamsburg bridge, and dinner with friends almost every night.
Recently, Ian wore his Mondaine on a trip to the Dominican Republic where he really put us to the test. From a wedding, to the pool, to a day of sports on the beach, Ian raves about the dependability and water resistance of his new favorite luxury watch.
My name is Sepi, and for the past 10 years my career has been working with the most brilliant-minded students as a high school physics and chemistry teacher. I’ve also played the role of poet, author, and lifelong lover of nature.
I am in the midst of pivoting toward a different lifestyle at the moment—moving from New York City to an off-grid homestead in the Scottish Highlands, making a shift to become a homesteader, gardener, and herbalist, co-creating with the flowers for a line of clean beauty products called Wild Bare Wellness.
Max is a corporate attorney in Minneapolis juggling a rigorous work schedule and chasing around two kids under five; all the while still making time for date nights with his wife and much-needed basketball therapy when he can steal a few moments back from his busy day.
Collin is an architectural researcher, designer, and builder. He owns and operates a design build company focusing primarily on high-end residential construction in Los Angeles. His approach is to learn everything he can about his clients, come up with the rudiment of an idea for a project and carry it all the way through schematics, construction documents, and construction until the project is built.
