The fashion editor Diana Vreeland once said, ‘Pink is the navy blue of India’ and in Rajasthan I certainly saw why she would say that. Everywhere we went the women were dressed in the most gorgeous shades of that colour.
At home in the UK, pink is sometimes dismissed as a girly colour, a bit weak, even submissive. But the rich shades of the saris worn by these women at Amber Fort (above) belie that. Among all the wonderful colours that I remember from our time in Rajasthan, it is pink – a shocking pink – that stands out.
I hope this collection of images, shared for Terri’s Sunday Stills colour challenge, will show you just why I loved the vivid pinks of Rajasthan so much.
