Margot Shaw, Closing Remarks

Founder/ Editor-in-Chief, FLOWER Magazine

A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Margot Shaw studied Art History at Hollins College in Virginia and Interior Design at the University of Texas. Once a self-confessed “call and order flowers girl”, Shaw reached a watershed moment when planning her daughter’s home wedding. Working alongside the floral and event designer, she recognized the artistry and inspiration involved in “flowering” and soon began apprenticing with the same designer.

A few years in, unable to locate a publication that spoke to her passion, she set about creating one. Flower is a floral lifestyle magazine that inspires, entertains, and educates readers with a point of view that stems from seeing life through a botanical lens.

Margot is a passionate advocate for girls and women and is offering our closing message.
