Fashion Symposium: Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion
April 30 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
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. The symposium is organized in conjunction with the book and exhibition Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion, which will open in 2021.
