The Profile: As Artistic Director of the Four Seasons George V in Paris, Jeff Leatham has created a sensation with his original and extravagant floral designs. He realised that flowers were his destiny aged 18 after visiting the Four Seasons Los Angeles and seeing the impact and beauty that the arrangements offered. After starting his career designing for Four Seasons in Beverly Hills in the mid 1990s he moved to Europe and has since been voted Best Hotel Florist in Europe three times.
Most recently US society matrons whisper his name as the one responsible for masterminding the flowers at Chelsea Clinton's 2010 wedding. William and Kate didn't use him for theri wedding but perhaps they can corretc that mistake with the christening flowers.
The Style: Jeff Leatham interiors express both his love for flowers and his passion for design. His floral sculptures are often compared to contemporary art and always make an impact, they never just become part of the background. Leatham creates a dramatic effect in his arrangements through the use of colour, shape and simplicity. His style can be described as 'clean, simple and chic'. Always the perfectionist, Jeff's passion for detail shines through in his floral designs, art and architecture.

Jeff's work has also been commissioned by by design houses such as Philip Tracy, Alexander McQueen, Swarovski Crystal, Givenchy and Valentino and his celebrity fans include Tina Turner, Madonna and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Leatham recently brought his talent to the small screen, revealing some of his design secrets and why he is the go-to guy for creating events with impact or an impressive welcome for the grandest of hotel lobbies on the TLC show 'Flowers Uncut with Jeff Leatham'.
