Flowers often feature in Rodarte’s collections. In this dress (Spring 2007), the use of oversized silk roses in variegated shades of silk tulle make a bold and striking statement. For the spring 2019 collection, Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy commissioned hairstylist Odile Gilbert to make hair sculptures from fresh roses, which were widely acclaimed.

Photographed as Part of the Exhibit Ravishing: The Rose in Fashion, on View at The Museum at FIT Through November 28th, 2021.
