Wei Yao is the official FTD World Cup 2019 competitor for China. He will compete against other floral artists from around the globe with the goal of winning the world’s most prestigious floral design competition.
Flowers have been a lifelong passion for Yao. Ever since he was a child, he loved flowers. It’s no wonder he incorporated that interest into his profession as a floral designer, and feels fortunate to do what he loves as a career.
Yao worked at several prestigious floral companies, where he was mainly engaged in floral gift design and product research. Becoming an expert floral designer gave him the chance to study design, but also the means to demand more from himself.
Yao is also proud to represent his country on the world stage and is grateful for the opportunity to learn from other world-class florists. In addition to floral design, his interests include cooking and music.
