2024’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show has been attended by Royalty and Netflix stars this week, commencing on Tuesday 21st May. Reportedly greener than ever, this year contestants have truly championed sustainability, showcasing unpredictable weather resilient plants and futuristic water features that are designed to collect and redistribute rainwater throughout your garden. 

In this article, we explore some fashion inspiration taken directly from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, and recommend some local and sustainable Chelsea brands for your floral fashion fix. 

Strut your stuff 

Queen Camilla walked through the Flower Show this year with an elegant peacock feathered dress, complete with a royal collar and puffed sleeves. If you’ve been struck with inspiration by this bold combination, maybe slow fashion brand Brora is for you! Their thoughtful designs are responsibly made with beautiful fabrics and bold style. Their vibrant colours and stunning prints are sure to turn some heads. 

Wallflowers can bloom too 

Bridgerton has graced this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, giving the wallflowers a peaceful haven to read and write about the latest gossip from the Ton. Designed by Holly Johnston, this Penelope Featherington influenced garden is certain to conjure your inner Regency era spirit. Claudie Pierlot not only offers gorgeously feminine designs with flowing silhouettes and delicate colours, they care about our planet too. 

Pretty in purple

Purple has been a trending colour for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, exhibited through its emergence in unconventional vegetables, such as purple carrots, peas and tomatoes, to name just a few. Even one of the standout plants was a stunning poppy, with a gorgeous grape colour that flowers from June to August. 

Purple is in the air! Why not inject some colour into your wardrobe this season with some bold hues of purple. There are plenty of options in Chelsea, including Reformation’s sustainable collection of polka dotted purple skirts and dainty tops topped off with pretty bows. 

Giving back

Water features that collect and store rainwater were a big takeaway from this year’s Flower Show. Incorporate this sense of flow and kindness into your wardrobe by investing in sustainable fashion. 

So, just like collecting rainwater and giving back to our environment, why not invest in some sustainable pieces that may make your wardrobe a friend to the planet. Toast’s circular fashion initiatives are the perfect way to ensure your wardrobe is climate conscious. Stand out from the crowd with creatively repaired clothes that have been intricately embroidered and mended to give them a new lease of life. 

Embrace your inner child 

2024 marks the first year that the RHS Chelsea Flower Show has included a garden designed by children for children. Coined the ‘No Adults Allowed Garden’, this fantasy inspired space is free from the judges, but has been visited by the King and Queen and has their Royal stamp of approval. Embrace your inner child with White Coco. 

One of only three locations in the UK, White Coco on King’s Road boasts bold and bright colour combinations with fanciful prints that are sure to catch anyone’s eye. Let your free and playful imagination run wild.
