Even before the 2024 Met Gala, we started seeing a major trend toward flowers and winged creatures coming out of the designer’s studios and fluttering and blossoming on the red carpet. But thanks to the Gala’s dress code theme, “The Garden of Time” (which gave a nod to the title of a short story by J.G. Ballard), the celebrities showed up in looks that ranged from elegant to fantastical to whimsical. Since the event, themes of florals, dragonflies and butterflies have become even more trend-worthy than usual. We are seeing them in 3-D pieces and enameled interpretations in every category of jewelry. And these botanicals and small creatures, which once signaled renewal in springtime, are now being designed, shown and worn year-round.
