Fragile, feminine and sensual, pink has constantly been a color that designers turn to in the world in fashion due to its versatility. New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology is opening its doors in September to an exhibition dedicated entirely to perpetual pink.

The Fashion Institute of Technology are set to explore all sides of pink in a monochromtic exhibition bringing together iconic pieces, from Christian Dior’s sixties pink dresses to Comme des Garçon’s rosy extravaganzas, via rare items dating back to the 18th century. Often synonymous with femininity and innocence, pink has infiltrated decades and cultures. Both seductive and powerful, it can be divisive – is at a symbol of soft naivety or of brash vulgarity? The FIT explores these questions with is exhibition Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color.
Pink: The History of a Punk, Pretty, Powerful Color, from September 7, 2018 to January 5, 2019, The Museum at the FIT
