Living in New York City, it is very hard to pretend that we have four seasons. In reality it goes right from summer to winter and vice versa. That being said, in order to go along with the rest of the Northeastern seasons, especially in fashion, we have to learn to treat each season by the month it is supposed to be!
Shades of PINK, my favorite color, (well my favorite color if we can’t count glitter!) truly evolve throughout each season, but in reality, pink can be worn during every season. It is a sign of power, strength, and love. Why would you not want to wear a color that represents something so bold and unique?
Did you know that women were not allowed to wear pink that it was only a man’s color?! How many times have you heard someone say, “oh that is for a man not a woman.” Well guess what: we no longer live in a world where men are in charge, we no longer live in a world where a woman should not feel powerful, and we no longer live in a world where men can direct us in what we can and cannot wear! So you rock that pink from season to season girlfriends because you are powerful, pretty, punk, strong and loving and you deserve to wear a color that represents not only men but now women of the world!
The Idea of pink goes beyond just clothing; it symbolizes so many different ideas throughout history. If you are looking for a fun pink activity in Manhattan then head over to the museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology at 27th street and 7th avenue for the exhibit Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color. The exhibit is free and now open to the public until January 5, 2019. The designs are flawless, elegant and everlasting.
I went to the museum on October 3rd (clearly I had to take my mom to see the pink exhibit on a Mean Girls Wednesday,) Not only did I get to see some of my favorite designer’s silhouettes from events over the years, but I learned facts about the color pink that I was not aware of before. Did you know that gay men in the Holocaust had to wear a pink triangle so that they were easily identified?! Excuse me but this fact definitely saddened me but peaked my interest to continue learning along the pathway of the exhibit. I have to say my two favorites were the case of all pink children’s toys, machines and obviously, my all-time favorite was the display with the MOSCHINO’s Barbie outfit!
Keep rocking your shades of pink my #powerfulwomen!
