I am pleased to see that pink elephants are in style, or, more specifically, in the Thursday Styles section of the New York Times. As the Times reported, attendees of runway shows being held at Milk Studios during New York Fashion Week will be greeted by a 10-foot-tall inflatable pink elephant, designed by artist Tristin Lowe. The elephant is part of a collaboration between Made Fashion Week and the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, designed to raise awareness about ivory trafficking and the killing of African elephants. (Made Fashion Week is producing more than 30 runway shows, including 15 at Milk Studios.)
I’m definitely in favor of helping African elephants, which I had the great pleasure of seeing up close and personal during my trip to South Africa last year.
I’m also in favor of pink elephants. As I told JCK Magazine earlier this year, one of my new Maneater rings will feature a pink elephant. I wasn’t planning to share any photos before the official debut of the ring, but now I can’t resist giving you a peek of the design as a work-in-progress.
You’ll see photos of the finished ring later this year!
