The Museum at FIT (MFIT) announced that it will reopen to visitors with the debut of a major exhibition, Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion, which explores how the rose has influenced the way we look, dress, feel, and fantasize.

This major exhibition foregrounds innovative and experimental designs, while recognizing that wearing or holding a rose can be transformative. The exhibition will run through November 28. Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion features more than 130 items ranging from the most luxurious hand-woven and embroidered 18th-century silks to the latest gender-neutral catwalk trends.

The museum will be open Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from noon to 8 pm, and Saturdays and ... more
