I have always been romanced by the unexpected beauty and joy of New York city. Each day is its own exhilarating courtship, where even the simplest pleasures feel decadent: flowers from the bodega, morning coffee consumed while battling rush hour, or the symphony of a taxi ride. After twenty years, I still find myself enamored with the skyline. – Prabal Gurung
“Like most love stories, it started with a rose: a pure symbol of love and beauty, handpicked with care from the local corner store. Too often overlooked or deemed unimpressive compared to its elaborately named kin, these bodega beauties took on a special meaning this summer. During a heartbreaking and tumultuous period, they filled us with hope and joy in the moments we needed them most. I saw flowers everywhere as they petaled the seminal events of the summer; inviting themselves into intimate moments of respite at home, or acting as a beacon of reverence and respect at vigils, black lives matter protests, the Brooklyn liberation march for black trans lives, and peaceful demonstrations by the stonewall inn. From the gatherings of voguers that streamed down Chelsea piers, to the cool kids draped in thrifted wears hanging at Washington square park, and the drag performers in Sheridan square in their full regalia, roses blossomed in celebration of life and the promise of what lay ahead. A sentimental motif, the blooms served as a reminder that amidst uncertainty and darkness, we find light in the true expression of our most real and authentic selves.” – from – Prabal Gurung
