MiiR x Bloom & Plume is the coming together of white and Black-owned businesses to create more beauty in the world. Donning fluid, floral artwork by Maurice Harris that touches on fancy and fantasy, this artist collaboration celebrates a modern day history that calls on all of us to participate for a better, more equitable, future.
MiiR first met Bloom & Plume through our 2020 Small Business Support campaign, where local small businesses were nominated on our social channels to receive $5,000 of custom product as a way to support one another during COVID-19 and exercise more conscious support of Black-owned brands. Bloom & Plume was one of the 20 Small Business Support winners.
The Artist: Maurice Harris
Maurice's unique point of view, sense of humor, craftsmanship and dedication to his community has made him both one of the most sought after floral designers in Los Angeles and one of the most followed florists on Instagram. Most recently you can see him on his TV show "Centerpiece" for Quibi and the reality competition "Full Bloom" for HBOMax.
Maurice Harris is a Los Angeles-based artist who is best known as the visionary behind Bloom & Plume, a bespoke floral design studio located in Echo Park, Los Angeles. Founded in 2010, B&P aims to bring natural opulence with the highest quality product, a sense of style and always a dash of good humor. Bloom & Plume is a proud Black, queer-owned business.
Black & White Coffee Roasters
US Barista Champions Kyle Ramage and Lem Butler formed Black & White Coffee Roasters in 2017. Envisioned to be more than just a quality coffee roaster, B&W aims to change the competitive landscape, not by being “better” than its competitors, but by pushing the craft forward through collaboration. B&W roasts in a way to showcase each coffee’s unique quality, and to honor the extremely difficult work of cultivation.
