Athena Duncan and Mairead Curtin joined forces in 2000, and have since maintained a natural but distinctly brave approach to floristry. The pair prefers to use seasonal British grown flowers where possible, and frequently uses wild flowers and foliage. But they, like their subjects, have an adventurous side – hence the name. ‘Flowers are natural rebels,’ they say. ‘We are rebels too, and love to be bold and experimental’. Rebel Rebel has a reputation for unusual and contrasting colour combinations, and presenting flowers in an ‘unexpected way’. As well as supplying flowers for events, weddings and parties, Rebel Rebel has created a large-scale, ceiling-height installation at the Mayfair Flower Show for the past two years.
