Jewel Blooms: Splendours of Singapore
September promises a vibrant treat for visitors to Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel). Dive into the floral tapestry of Singapore through ten remarkable floral displays. Each symbolizes a different facet of the Singaporean story. From 1–10 September, Jewel will hold its first-ever event dedicated to the magnificent world of flora – Jewel Blooms: Splendours of Singapore.
James Fong, CEO of Jewel Changi Airport Development, explains the essence of the festival. “Jewel and Changi Airport are widely known for our world-class gardens and nature-inspired spaces. Building on this signature, Jewel Blooms aims to become another distinguished Jewel event that can bring together the community – whether it’s highlighting the works of local artists, inspiring budding florists of tomorrow, or creating a space for plant lovers to interact and share tips – through a common love for flowers and plants.”
Highlights of the Floral Festival at Jewel Changi
Local Florists Shine
Witness exclusive floral installations from eminent designers, including Anson Low, Christopher Lim, Damien Koh, and more. These artworks reflect Singapore’s rich history, culture, and culinary traditions. They are on display in the grandeur of the Shiseido Forest Valley and Canopy Park.
Notably, Anson Low’s design was inspired by the world’s tallest indoor waterfall at Jewel Changi. Low’s creation boasts a medley of orchids, larkspur, flamingo lilies, and sea hollies, reimagining the stunning HSBC Rain Vortex.
Additionally, be on the lookout for three distinct creations crafted by Year 1 students from ITE College Central, Nitecin Floristr. These include a unique blend of fashion and nature inspired by Jewel’s iconic geometric facade.
Youth Floral Cup
This is a golden chance for budding florists aged 7 to 12 to showcase their talent. Participants are split into two categories based on age. They will use surprise boxes filled with fresh flowers and foliage to create their masterpieces. The completed artwork will be displayed near Luke’s Lobster from 2 to 7 September.
