Pink Power

⁠As I’ve shown some bold pink designs lately, I thought to share my ruminations on Pink Power with you…⁠

Pink is often thought of as a feminine colour. I love pink, but personally, as a woman, I sometimes feel persecuted by a pink cloud of fluffy cuteness that is by some considered to be the definition of my gender… Did you know that this has not always been the case? In the 18th and 19th Century pink was equally popular among men. In fact pink used to be seen as a colour for civility, intelligence, charm and youth; much-desired qualities in eligible young men as they courted the ladies. ⁠
