Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion

WHEN:

August 12th 2021 to November 28th 2021
Ended

WHERE:

The Museum at FIT, 7th Avenue at 27 Street, New York, 10001

WHAT:

Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion, explores how the rose has influenced the way we look, dress, feel, and fantasize. The rose and the savage thorns that protect it—along with the symbolism and myths it has inspired—have long affected designers of fashionable dress, textiles, and accessories. This major exhibition foregrounds innovative and experimental designs while recognizing that wearing or holding a rose can be transformative. Follow their website for more info.

The exhibition features more than 130 items ranging from the most luxurious hand-woven and embroidered 18th-century silks to the latest gender-neutral catwalk trends. Items were selected from the museum’s world-class collection and include a large group of hats, many of which are displayed for the first time. The garments and accessories are interpreted in the context of themes such as love, beauty, sex, sin, gendered identities, rites of passage, transgression, degradation, and death.

Admission is free. To avoid overcrowding, groups of people entering together should consist of no more than five friends or family members. MFIT hopes to increase capacity in the near future. Additional safety measures include social distancing, hand sanitizer stations, and the removal of high-touch areas such as interactive displays, seating, and brochure kiosks. It is mandatory that all visitors, regardless of their vaccination status, wear a face mask while in the museum.
