The Museum at FIT presents a free show called Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion exploring 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 foregrounded innovative and experimental designs, while recognizing that wearing or holding a rose can be transformative. The show runs until November 28th.

Tis the time to actually enjoy New York with Open Streets Columbus Avenue (every Sunday) from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
