According to the Society of American Florists, an estimated 250 million roses are produced for Valentine’s Day each year. One of the most lasting romantic symbols, the V-Day emblem has been an inspiration for poets and artists since the time of Shakespeare. It’s only fitting that fashion designers would turn the fragrant flower into a romantic motif representative of love, desire, and femininity. Whether incorporating actual flowers into stunning couture garments or reimagining the rose in embroidery and patterns, these runway looks make a floral fashion statement. Below, some of the most iconic instances of roses on the runway from Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, and more.
