With its symbolism of sensual desire, fatal love, and gendered sin, the rose and its thorns have remained steadfast motifs across all industries. Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion foregrounds the essence of the immortalized flower with 130 fashion pieces that study its potency in the context of appearance, emotion, and fantasy. Hosted by The Museum at FIT, the exhibition runs the gamut from ornate embroidery to androgynous silhouettes in order to navigate the natural motif’s transformative ethos.
