REST IN PINK

A redefinition of funeral wear, ‘Rest In Pink’ is the designer’s own personal wardrobe for her funeral. After researching the traditional, sorrowful Taoist funeral, she reinterprets the convention, viewing death as a new beginning and a blessing to every soul. Unlike the traditional ritual that is dominated by yellow white tones, here pink and silver permeate the wardrobe for the great celebration. Pink as the colour of romance, femininity, love, friendship, harmony, compassion, relaxation and companionship.
