This year will mark the 21st annual Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden—and it’s expected to be a runway hit!
Each year, the New York Botanical Garden showcases one of the world’s most delicate flowers in a special Orchid Show that takes over and completely transforms the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. This year’s show, The Orchid Show: Florals in Fashion, will run from February 17–April 21, 2024.
Designs from three visionaries will be highlighted in the show, including Collina Strada, a fashion platform that promotes climate and social awareness, by Hillary Taymour, Dauphinette, an upcycled fashion label that uses preserved botanicals and repurposed materials, by Olivia Cheng, and FLWR PSTL, the founder of the first on-demand botanical art atelier in the world, by Kristen Alpaugh.
The Orchid Show: Florals in Fashion was inspired by the connection between the botanical world and fashion. Each designer will showcase their personal perspective on that connection using colorful flowers and rare specimen from the Botanical Garden’s collections and beyond.
NYBG will invite visitors to “walk the orchid runway” as they’re engulfed in the beauty of thousands of orchids and immersive installations.
To add to the good news, “Orchid Nights” will return to NYBG on select evenings during The Orchid Show. Guests can enjoy the exhibition an evening with music, food and drink!
We recommend that you try and make some time in your busy schedule come February to catch this stunning show that’ll take us colorfully into spring.
The exhibit will be on display from February 17 – April 21, 2024. Grab tickets to NYBG here.
