As you are well aware by now, I love me a good classic rainbow wardrobe. Add fros to that and now we are talking! British-based designer, Ashish, totally brought his rainbow game for the Fall 2016 RTW show for London Fashion Week. I couldn’t help put assemble it in a true Dress The Rainbow collage.
Since Dress the Rainbow ended I’ve been on full holiday mode and haven’t had a chance to come up for air. Phew! I’ve been working to share this 200 photo full color collage of all of you lovely ladies (and gents!) who participated in the 60 day project and boy, did you kill it! Isn’t it amazing how all of you can form one continuous, beautiful spectrum?! I haven’t officially announced the winner of the project along with all the honorable mention here on the blog (but I have on Instagram! See here!), but I’ll be doing that next week along with some of the amazing shoots you guys did. Stay tuned!
In the mean time, please admire all of these colorful participants in all their rainbow glory! And check out the hashtag here to see the full list of participants.
I’m sure you’ve all been wondering how you can get your paws on Dress the Rainbow in printed form–because I know you all want pictures of me on your coffee table (cough, cough)….Well, wonder no more! It’s here! I partnered up with Chatbooks to bring you the official Dress the Rainbow book. It’s a cute 6×6″ 75 pagephotobook of the full 60 day project along with the photos arranged in fun rainbow grids.
As you might know by now, Dress the Rainbow started out as a color project wearing a solid color against the same colored background. It turned into a more meaningful project when I asked my creative and inspiring friends to join in with me, each bringing along their own stories and perspectives. To see the full Instagram project, check the collective hash tag here, where I invited all of you to join in too, and my own photos here.
I’ve decided to give 20% of the proceeds from the book to support the Syrian migrant crisis through the Red Cross.
60 days of dressing in every hue of the rainbow can lead to one beautiful long grid and one colorful slide show (press play for a delightful tune!). Thanks for following along on this color exploration! Check out the full Dress the Rainbow shoots here and stay tuned for a fun announcement this upcoming week!
What started out as a 30 day color project turned into 50 and then…60! Yes, Dress the Rainbow has come to a close after two whole months of endless wall-scouting, dreamy clothes shopping, and shameless model-faking. I invited you, dear readers, to participate and wow! Over 1,000 of you joined in! Some of you really took it to heart and did your own versions of the project and I was floored at your color finding and dedication. Please, take a look at all the submissions here. I’ll be posting some of my favorites on the blog and Instagram next week along with the winner of the contest.
And, AND, I have two more special announcements. Can you even take it?! The first one is tonight and the next one will be announced next week so stay tuned for that, but in the mean time…introducing THE OFFICIAL DRESS THE RAINBOW SHIRT!
I partnered up with & Apparel to create this rainbow-lovers oxford blouse and it’s screaming for a color-loving home. Click here to purchase this adorable guy. He’s got a sweet collar and buttons up the back and two slits on the top to show off your beautiful collar bone—meow! And of course, an embroidered rainbow in lovely colors. As you know, I’m all about the dresses and skirts, but he’d be so cute with jeans too (gotta get me some of those…). AND, it’s at a super affordable price.
I’m posting the full rainbow spectrum along with some last thoughts about the project tomorrow so stay tuned!
