These two lovelies are the Flamingos of Paolita! Joseph Bachman, co owner of Polita beachwear introduced them to me after their show in Baku, during London Fashion Week. Joseph told me that the flamingos have been around the world with the Paolita team and have been introduced to many people, but nobody had been able to come up with suitable names for them.

I immediately named one Rosie May. After a few seconds of thought, I named the other Melody Ray. In fact, these are the names I’ll give me daughters if I ever have kids. Or maybe to my sons if both of them grow up to become drag queens or step on board the transgendered express, and be named after pink flamingos. How camp is that?!
