Welcome to our Magical Moving Garden
Krewe des Fleurs is a NOLA-based costume and performance collective. When we're not parading, we share creative and inspiring ideas from around the world on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Each year the members of our krewe build larger than life collars or headdresses in the image of a different flower.
In our inaugural year, we paraded as the Gilded Lilies. Our second year, we hit the route as Radical Roses. 2017 brought out a familiar Louisiana flower, the Iris, designed to pay homage to Krewe of Iris's 100 year anniversary.
In 2018, we will debut our new varietal on or about January 5, AKA: 12th Night or Epiphany. Until then... we'll stay top secret while each flower buds and blossoms.
In our first three years, we worked with Katherine Champagne (Sugarcane Costumes) to design and creates each magnificent flower. Katie then worked with each members to see her own version and vision realized. Today, Katie is focused on individual costume projects and other artistic ventures.
When we're not in "full Fleur" you'll see us around town in giant floral headdresses, designed and built by each member.
The driving concept behind our krewe is that each woman is beautiful and unique. As our garden grows with new flowers and new members, you will see us blossom into a fantastic array of colors, shapes, and sizes.
