A love for flowers matched with an entrepreneurial spirit birthed OldVine Florals located in the heart of downtown LA’s Fashion District. Just blocks from the historic Los Angeles Flower Market, Southern California’s premiere indoor flower market place, founder Itika Oldwine, established OldVine Florals in 2017. The inspiration to launch her very own floral company came while working under famed Los Angeles based floral designer Eric Buterbaugh. After two amazing years at Eric Buterbaugh Design, Itika launched her business as a vessel for her own point of view on blooming creations and to give a modern twist to the flowery landscape of L.A.
Itika Oldwine-Grimble is a woman on a mission – to make memories and history. The prominent Los Angeles floral designer, and owner of OldVine Florals, has an eye – and a nose– for beauty. Known for creating memorable visuals with her stunning bouquets and floral installations, she’s now exploring the power of olfactory memory with Oldvine Fragrance. As the first black female floral designer to create a bespoke line, she hopes to make luxury more equitable, inclusive and accessible.
