Spreading some Pink Love...

I have already stated my stand on the role of fashion in creating awareness about pertinent issues. It helps reiterate my view that there is more to fashion and style than just vanity and social-acceptance. That the fashion industry does play a more significant role in our lives. A clear example of this are the various products that contribute to breast-cancer awareness.

Fashion Targets Breast Cancer is one such well-known initiative. So I dug up many more, courtesy a simple search on Google images. I request you all to continue to spread the word and wear your pink ribbons where the world can see them. And if you must shop till you drop, do consider some of the products featured below. They give your style a pink edge. And that's good to have.




Have ipod, will accessorize. Do consider this lovely cover from Incase. You ipod will love you for dressing it up in style.


Step out and face the sun with some pink love on your side. This lovely Target umbrella is just one of the awesome products from fashion targets breast cancer series of products. For more, check out their website.


Look at this bracelet from Marc. Need I say more?
Below are some more products from the fashion for breast cancer awareness and cure kitty...





So, keep loving pink, and the world will love you for it.

the ipod case is pretty cute.

I love the pink umbrella, though I'll opt-out for the vast amount of tiny target logos. a big one in the middle, I might have managed =)

It's nice to see organizations like this helping people, the fashion world can be so ruthless sometimes...

Hi,
Love the birkenstock.I hve not seen them yet in KL.

Design for mankind: And their appeal goes up a lot considering they serve a purpose, right!

Bombchell: Oh, I agree with you on this. i am a bit of a brand-phobe myself. I like small logos. This Sunday, my husband too, decided against a great looking watch because it had a HUGE logo on it. Excess branding...

Vain and Vapid : Oh, ruthless indeed! But then, no one really tries to focus on the bright side. We should use this as an example. fashion can, and must, serve a higher purpose.

Breakaway: You know, some of these products have been around for some time now. they might be out of stock.

Gosh, I didn't even know these products were supporting breast cancer. It's great that so many companies are willing to help. I had a family member that was diagnosed with breast cancer so it's always great to see people supporting the cause.

Pinkstilettoes - It's always great to see fashion supporting a cause, especially a cuase like this one. Isn't it great?

Jenny _ Well, the support has been around for some time. Often, we don't really know about it.

What is it with guys and their phobia to the pink, nothing better to watch a guy very well sure about his sexuality and wearing a pink shirt.
