Pretty in Pink - Leading Events's Private Party at Dream Downtown

The last time I lived in pink was like…10 years ago. I was one of those girls who had everything in pink — sneakers, pencil cases, hair bands, you name it. However, when I reached puberty, my obsession with pink clashed with my newfound identity as a “mature and independent woman.” I decided that, with the exception of nail polish, it was time to withdraw from the world of pink.

After attending Leading Events’s private party at Dream Downtown and talking to its founder Lea Kadish on Tuesday evening, I realized that it was time to change. Far from being childish or women-exclusive, pink is a unisex color that expresses love, hope, and empowerment. Pink is cool.

I almost shouted out as soon as I stepped into the party room. With the dress code #“10yearchallenge,” not only guests but the venue itself was dressed up as an homage to 2009. It was adorned by pink balloons, ribbons, stickers, and even napkins. It goes without saying that all the food and drink were perfectly matching up — a testament to Leading Events’s ability to plan a great party.

If you want to be a successful guest at Leading Events’s future parties, here’s the party guide typed with my 15 % hangover:

Step 4: Absolutely try the pink vodka gummy bears! Creatively infused with Chopin Vodka, it delivered an incredibly dual flavor of sweetness and stimulation.

Step 6: Now it’s time to live it up! Mark down your stunning looks through the Hypnocam, cuddle your friends and lovers, and enjoy some “trampoline time” with your besties on a king size bed.

Feeling exhausted or thirsty after the rivalry? Take a bottle of TREO with you. This fruity beverage infused with birch water will refresh you up in a wink.

It was a wonderful launching party where people came to mingle, recollect, and share their stories. Lea, as one of the many girls with “pink fever,” but one of the very few mature and independent females who associate pink with her identity, has a unique story to tell. “I believe that real men wear pink.” Inspired by her father, Lea chose millennial pink as the business color for Leading Events, a company led by creative millennials.

The main takeaway I got from the event is, pink is much more sophisticated than we thought. It was a color that once dominated our carefree childhood, and it also plays a big part in constructing our own identities. Pink signifies more than just youth. It is the color for hope, empowerment, creativity, and leadership.
