Last month we visited The Museum at FIT to see the exhibition “Pink: The History of a Punk, Powerful, Pretty Color.” It walked us through 80 extraordinary pink ensembles by designers such as Christian Dior, Comme des Garçons, Elsa Schiaparelli and Givenchy, and examined the various meanings and impressions behind the polarizing color. Often associated with charm, sweetness, childhood and femininity, the exhibit explored how the color pink was used and viewed in different societies from early 18th century through the present, and how attitudes toward the color have continued to shift through the years. Scroll through our gallery below to view highlights from the show.
We recently journeyed down to Memphis, TN to take in the culture and soul of the historic city (and to sample some barbecue, of course). Music and art flood the streets and there is so much to hear and see. Some of our favorite places were Stax Records, Sun Studio and The Rock n Soul Museum. Graceland was also a must-see.
