As in previous years, I had the honor of designing a number components for the Rainbow Center’s 14th Annual Black & White. The theme for 2016 was 80’s Glam. Guests were encouraged to glitz it up with big hair, bright colors, shoulder pads, and sequins. The theme was especially poignant, as 2016 saw the death of 80’s musicians and queer icons, Prince, David Bowie, and George Michael. Many guests dressed up in formal versions of outfits worn by these icons, and many others. Additionally, the color theme for 2016 was purple (in honor of Prince’s Purple Rain) and silver.
Designs for this year included geometric shapes, balanced but asymmetrical designs, and bright colors seen in the 1980’s.
