PINK! The colour and the artist, both have my heart. From Balenciaga’s campaign to the likes of Celine, pink made a bold statement this year at the runways and the streets. Pink in a millenial shades- fuschia to baby pink, darker hues to metallic shades, was seen taking the limelight. And I was talking about how much I love the song TRY !
Although, the shades varied and the styling too, we have seen PINK in more bold ways rather than girly silhouettes. It is such a treat to see experimental styling, tell me about it! Fashion’s elite have been spotted donning pink, the colour of the season. BADGIRLRIRI’s latest collection is also inspired majorly from the colour of the season. Plus, having so many of my fellow bloggers doing their way of THINK PINK, I too decided to do something keeping in mind the COLOUR, TEXTURE and most importantly, the TRENDS- one of which is RUFFLES.
It surprises me how a very girly colour is worn in non- girly silhouettes and also that it looks so damn dope. Pink is also a colour not only suitable for wheatish to fairer skin but for dark tones, just that, be careful about the shade of pink you wear.
When I planned this series, I had something else in mind regarding the backdrop- an amusement fare, those MEENA BAZAARS, you know! Pink, somehow got me thinking of cotton candies, and cotton candies meaning my golden childhood. Childhood is so incomplete without those MEENA BAZAARS, don’t you feel? During summer breaks, our haven was my maternal aunt’s place and that’s where I got up on my first ride. But I was definitely not wearing any pink dress. My father always considered me as his SON, well, till now I couldn’t figure out why! My childhood was mostly filled with suits and waistcoats and not frilly frocks and pump shoes. During that ride, way back in late 90s, I lost my sanity and was scared too bad. Doesn’t the childhood memories always bring out a laugh? I mean, how silly we were back in the day! Writing this post reminds me of my accident. In fact, I penned down this post way back in May but anyway it couldn’t go live on time and I had to re write this post now. I met with an accident on June and just like the assignments and projects that I lost due to my bed- rest days, I lost the location too! The fare was gone long before I was in a condition to go and shoot. This left me quiet demotivated( as if the assignments that I lost weren’t enough)! Well! I am a stubborn person , oh, tell me about it! At times you come to the exact same place from where you’ve begun. That is, life brings you to the same position from where it all started! Being a nobody. I expect you to read between the lines. It’s easy to ask somebody to get up and run but not quiet easy to make up your mind to rise from the darkest pit that you’ve sunken yourself into. Most of the shots in this series have the left side of my face covered, for obvious reasons. Then the lines ‘YOU GOTTA GET UP AND TRY AND TRY AND TRY’ comes to my rescue!
