Meet the Artists Behind the 40,000 Paper Flowers in Dior’s Les Arts Décoratifs Installation

Since 2012, Wanda Barcelona has been the creative group behind the hyperreal paper flowers and plants at Dior exhibitions and events around the world. To boot, the trio (made up of Botero, Daniel Mancini, and Iris Joval) has also created installations for Hermès, Karl Lagerfeld, Comme des Garçons, Colette, Zara, and events at Cannes since they founded their company in 2007. But the latest project from the Barcelona-based group might just be the most stunning yet: gorgeous paper blooms that resemble wisteria and lily of the valley hanging over some of Dior’s most beautiful gowns of all time at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. The exhibition opened earlier this month, and to say Wanda Barcelona’s blooms are a main fixture of the exhibition would be an understatement.
