Mr Roses, a.k.a. James Stevens, is the Greek-Australian entrepreneur responsible for creating a global roses brand that has everybody, including Ellen DeGeneres, talking.
Jame’s father was born in Kalymnos and his mother was born in Leros.
They arrived from Greece to Australia in the 1950’s and opened a flower shop in Sydney’s Town Hall train station, thus beginning James’ lifetime love affair with beautiful flowers.
In 1995, James founded Roses Only, a business that has since grown to become a household name across Singapore, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Indonesia and also delivering to a grand total of 48 states across the United States.
Starting a new chapter, James founded his new brand Mr Roses in Australia just this year.
