Lecture: Think Pink!
Regina Lee Blaszczyk, Ph.D., Visiting Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania
Who predicted color trends before Pantone and the Color Marketing Group? This talk explores the careers of America’s first professional color forecasters and their efforts to coordinate the flow of color information through the millinery, leather, garment, and textile trades. Heard of Mamie Eisenhower’s First Lady Pink? Come and hear about the forecasters who created it.
