RAINBOW (Through fashion).-

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening (Coco Chanel).

Fashion goes "hand in hand" with identity. Through the centuries we wear clothes to express ourselves. People dress to convey their history, their taste for music, their culture, their interests. RAINBOW is a symbol of freedom, progress, struggle and vindication.
