At one stage I felt as though my Instagram was becoming monotonous; clinical white everything, from fashion to interior design. One word – BORING!
I understand that this crisp, clean look can be an aesthetically pleasing theme to the eye but as inspiration to viewers, I believe there needs to be a sense of reality and all white everything just doesn’t feel practicable or feasible. However, I do have an absolutely random thought – How do men that wear a Kandura manage to keep it so bloody white? This is something myself and my friends always wanted to know!
I personally dress in accordance to my mood, so if you see me wearing the rainbow, it’s a clear indication that I am feeling pretty damn good! Colour injects an instantaneous shot of happiness into my mood. Supposedly, in accordance to the colour wheel, warm colours such as oranges, reds and yellows all invoke a sense of happiness, optimism and overall good energy. Additionally, with my skin and hair colouring, I believe it compliments the contrasting elements. Although, in saying that I don’t believe these colours are restricted to only my characteristics but are also flattering to other skin tones too.
Contrasting colours and patterns will be a continuous theme that you will see throughout this blog. I think it demonstrates a positive outlook on this cosmopolitan world that we live in. There is incredible diversity in this world that I honestly love it – Culture, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, and just simple differentiating interests that makes each human being a unique addition to our ever-evolving planet.
I know we live in an era of superstition, which can be considerably terrifying but as someone who has lived abroad and experienced the above aspects of different cultures and nationalities, there is nothing more exciting.
Colour television was first commercially available in the 1950s to the 1960s, although nearly 70 years later we still aren’t inclusive of colour in the media and personally I want to encourage diversity by showing that life isn’t just simply black and white.
