Go to the thrift shop and buy the worst thing that the coolest kid in school would never wear. It’ll be the thing that’s the most ‘out.’ Buy it and turn it into something that’s funny and witty. Fashion is confidence. If you can get away with wearing it, it’s a new style.
John Waters, Director
Vulgarity is a very important ingredient in life. I'm a great believer in vulgarity- if it's got vitality. A little bad taste is like a nice splash of paprika. We all need a splash of bad taste- it's hearty, it's healthy, it's physical. I think we could use more of it. No taste is what I'm against.
Diana Vreeland, Former Editor in Chief of Vogue
Pink Flamingo Clothier is a small clothing store that will feature both repurposed used and vintage clothing as well as original clothing that is created in house and takes inspiration from the 50s and 60s but with a modern, punk edge, while always retaining a sense of humor about itself.
