The association of pink with femininity is relatively new historically, but still pretty well entrenched. The Nazis used a pink triangle to symbolise and stigmatise homosexuality; the gay community has since appropriated the colour pink and turned it into a source of power and pride.
In clothes, pink isn’t really me. Blame my colouring, but apart from a bit of a magenta phase, I definitely tend towards the orange end of the fashion spectrum.
I quite like pink in fabric though.
Because of the degrees I’ve chosen, pink has been the colour of graduation.
But pink for me belongs in nature; in sunrises and sunsets – and of course flowers.
