Russo has always looked at the big picture and saw success and
opportunity in the simplest things. After 10 years of exquisite Floral
design in New York City he was scouted by the wonderful Carl Schwartz
AKA “Uncle Cal”.
Carl was seeking a general manager to run the business &
become his successor. Vito was honored to join the incredible team of
Carl Alan Floral Designs Ltd in 2011. Since then Carl & Vito
formed not only a special relationship but a New Floral Couture brand
within Carl Alan Floral Designs. With Carl’s excellent business
sense, passion & knowledge of the industry, they were able to
blend Vito’s visions, drive & unique ideas together as one. This
