International Flower Arranging Event

INTERNATIONAL FLOWER ARRANGING EVENT BECOMES YET ANOTHER SUCCESS STORY FOR OSHWALS

Pritesh Hasmukh Shah, Naina Anju Shah & Priya Atul Shah represented the Kenya Floral Arrangement Club at the International Floral Art Championships hosted by the UK flower arranging body NAFAS, in Harrogate (near Leeds) in July 2010.
Pritesh won 1st prize & Gold Medal in Category 8 ‘Finishing Touches’ whilst Naina was Commended in that same class. Priya also received a Commended in the category ‘Solitude Of The Sea’.
All three are now leading names not only in Kenya’s flower arranging circle but also internationally. They have given many demonstrations and workshops within the Oshwal community as well as assisting with floral décor whenever the occasion arises.
2010 is not the first time Pritesh has won accolades at an international level. He has continuously won awards since 2007 which was the first time he exhibited at an overseas Show. The World Floral Art Show Boston June 2011 is now his next goal. ‘Best on Show’ has twice been won by him at the Kenya Floral Club shows in 2003 and 2006.
He is an international correspondent to several leading flower arranging journals and publications. www.spanglefish.com/kenyafloralclub - the website of the Kenya Floral Club is also designed and managed by Pritesh.
Past Club Chairperson Priya was the Show Chairman of the highly acclaimed May 2010 Flower Show ‘Elements’ held at Oshwal Centre whilst Pritesh was the Show Secretary.
All 3 members are dedicated workers on the Kenya Floral Club committee and are so artistic and talented not only in floral art but many other allied fields that Oshwals are immensely proud of them.
