Working as a florist in London for seven years, Charlotte Puxley developed her own flower-arranging style: all things wild and wonderful.
Once the British expat moved to Singapore in 2014, however, she says she couldn’t get a job that fit her talents. “I had so many unique vases – they needed to be put to use!” says Charlotte. So, that same year, she opened Charlotte Puxley Flowers.
Nowadays, her passionate team combs local markets for the best flowers – appreciating all elemental shapes, colours and textures found in nature – to give each floral creation its own special character. Charlotte sells these bespoke bouquets (for big events or “just because”) on her site as well as at her new Tan Boon Liat Building studio, where she also offers innovative flower-arranging classes.
“At the centre of everything we do, it’s about creativity and quality,” explains Charlotte, who is married to a Dutch expat and has two very cute French bulldogs. “We never lose sight of our original message – bringing great flowers to the people of SG.”
About The Finder Expatpreneur Awards
In 2017, The Finder debuted its first-ever Expatpreneur Awards to honour foreign-born entrepreneurs running successful expat-owned businesses in or from Singapore. In 2018, 23 expats were awarded for their tremendous dedication. This 2019, a new batch of 22 Expatpreneur Awardees have been unveiled! All of them have one thing in common: Their brands help people “live well in Singapore” – The Finder’s core mission.
