    This virtual event will be The Museum at FIT’s 24th academic symposium. Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion explores how the beauty, mythology, and symbolism of the rose have long influenced fashionable dress. Rose: it’s a flower, a color, and a scent. It’s in fairy tales and design. This flower has become integral to art and culture.

    Speakers include Amy de la Haye, professor at London College of Fashion and cocurator of the exhibition; Jonathan Faiers, professor of Fashion Thinking at Winchester School of Art; Colleen Hill, curator at MFIT and cocurator of the exhibition; Mairi MacKenzie, research fellow at Glasgow School of Art; and Elizabeth Way, assistant curator at MFIT.
