World-renowned Fleurs de Villes has launched its FEMMES exhibition for the very first time in Scotland at St James Quarter.

A series of fresh floral mannequins celebrating remarkable women around the world including Mary Queen of Scots, Annie Lennox and Marilyn Monroe will be showcased throughout the Galleria at The Quarter. Fleurs de Villes is also proud to be working with local floral talent who will create these tributes based on an inspirational photo or painting of each woman.

Guests can tour the self-guided exhibit from Friday 24th June, exactly one year on since St James Quarter opened its doors, until Sunday 3rd July.

Audiences of all ages, cultures and genders will be able to learn more about these fascinating women by scanning the QR codes on signs adjacent to each floral sculpture that will link visitors to their incredible stories.

To celebrate the official launch of Fleurs de Villes, St James Quarter has three floral themed taxis that will provide free rides between 12pm and 6pm to those keen to explore the bespoke floral show between Friday 24th June and Sunday 26th June.

The taxis, that are wrapped in summer florals, can be spotted and hailed in and around Edinburgh or can be booked directly through Central Taxis, with all costs spared if travelling to The Quarter.

Nick Peel, Managing Director at St James Quarter, says: “We are delighted that Fleurs de Villes FEMMES has arrived at St James Quarter, the hub of the capital city. We could not be more pleased to have Fleurs de Villes FEMMES grace our Galleria and celebrate inspirational women from across the globe in such a spectacular fashion. We look forward to welcoming all of our guests down to see this incredible display.”
