Thanks to MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie for hosting the Black Out Prompt:
Spring collection first shown, standout trends captivate.
Pretty pink dresses, bandeau tops [are] proposed by influential,
Femininity, classic ladylike variety reflected, underlying desire.
Creative support for the power and rights [of women],
At a critical moment, clothes mirror complexity and chaos.
[A] new creative pointed statement, paying tribute,
[Reminding us] attend the collection, printed with a line —
[It] leans [to] the left, favor[ing us] suffragettes.
Explicit in making politics known, a reaction to unsettling results,
[Women and] fashion imagined entering a [new] season,
Clothing playing [an] unexpected role, [our] viewpoints, [what] the world wears —
Becomes a political act.
Interpretation, construeing message of inclusion,
[There’s an] intention to celebrate women,
We can all agree, [we need] be attentive and open to the world, to our creativity.
[It] reflects our desires, embracing the imagery of strong,
[What we wear is a] universal language women embrace.
[Your] engagement [demonstrates] how perceptions can change,
Judged the same, we don’t assume shallow or [too] serious.
Imagine in the coming years [unyielding] support, consider —
A contrary affect; [our] standards represent [our] enormous role.
Perceive beauty’s responsibility taken seriously,
Heartening to see interest in lives, so moved [knowing] —
We’re more and [moving forward with all] pioneering women,
We’re not [merely] roses.
