“The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.” –William James
New Color Revolution is a stylish cause-marketing campaign and experiment in social activation fueled by the embrace of a colorful life. The goal is to spark a popular fashion movement promoting the value of being expressive, confident and aware, one that accelerates a vibrant state that enhances the quality of life while at the same time liberating us from anything that can hold us back. This uprising is undertaken not only for personal fulfillment, but also for the creation of a bright, hopeful and prosperous society. It is a highly-visible response to life that manifests across music, food, fashion, art and design to generate a more enlivened environment and more optimistic conceptions of beauty, truth and goodness.
This Revolution is fashion on a higher vibration and a fashionable practice that keeps us firmly in the vivid colorflow. Color expresses a primal emotive need. Wearing it and creating colorful environments satisfies in more ways than we can imagine. This passionate revolt into style is creative resistance with a liberating battle cry to colorized the fortified system of expressive inhibition in which the same tenured forces of the bland limited spectrum have been entrenched for years. This vivacious activism may be seen as extreme to some but compared to the void of the black hole it offers a most sensible Utopian solution to all the bleak dissolution that prevents us from stepping into the luminous future.
This is so because color beautifully expresses who we are. We are the colors we surround ourselves with and that we wear. Color immediately shows how much we feel and we care. In the Year of the Dragon, color is exploding in design, decor, art, and fashion, and with it a new color consciousness. We don’t just put on clothes anymore. We would never settle for boring white walls. We can’t see in the same old way. Once you see the lack in basic black you’ll never go back. Once you know, why settle for the status quo? Why not be seen and heard? You don’t even have to say a word. When we communicate with color we are understood, directly and dynamically. We see and feel the vibe. In a room of bland gray and blackness we are truly distinctive; reading, seeing and feeling the true hues between the lines. This is light by design moving at the speed of life; a lifelight that shows we can dance in the fire, that shows off a burning desire and gives us fever through the night.
