"I think it was part of my DNA as a designer to work with brands, and I really find it so fun and challenging," Kelsea told Diply, "because typically large corporate companies can feel less human, and for me, the way to bridge that connection is through flowers and through beauty. I've always been naturally inclined towards corporate clients because of that."
East Olivia isn't just making big creative displays for corporate brands, especially now that the pandemic has limited opportunities for that. Kelsea shifted focus and created an online store, Forever Florals, that sells dried and preserved floral arrangements that can last for up to a year. "I saw [the pandemic] as an opportunity — I've been wanting to launch a preserved florals line for a long time," Kelsea told Diply.
