This is my ode to pink. A color, that if I were put into as a child, I’d scream bloody murder. I hated the feminine soft color, so Barbie, so girlie, so submissive. I was everything but. I was a certified tomboy. I could climb trees with the best of them. That was then, and this is now.
I now understand that only a few of those things are true about pink. What I have discovered over the years is that red is the powerbroker, pink is the silent partner and in most cases the silent partner holds all of the power. Red screams SEX, pink whispers it. In fact, pink doesn’t have to say anything, you just pick up on its vibes.
Pink has this way of helping us tap into our super subtle side. It lets people know, we are just as confident as red, but in a different way. Top designers such as Burberry Prorsum, Dolce and Gabbana, Prabal Gurung, Topshop and others have rediscovered the power of pink by making it the focal color in their collections on the runway.
