In the Pink

Super Moon GifThe final week of April will kick off with a full moon, known this month as the Pink Moon. It’s also a “supermoon”.

The moon will officially become full at 11:32 p.m. ET Monday, April 26, but will look plenty full when it rises above the eastern horizon Monday evening. The moon will be its usual golden color near the horizon and look white as it moves overhead.

So why is it called the pink moon?

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, April’s full moon often corresponded with the early springtime blooms of a certain pink wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox subulata – commonly called creeping phlox or moss phlox – which also went by the name ‘moss pink’.

Joy Williams designs and manufactures exclusive and unique fashion-forward latex rubber wear. Specialising in bold, contemporary designs, Joy’s work shies from the stereotypical, utilising traditional and pioneering techniques to create exquisitely embellished pieces.

It is this craft aesthetic that has allowed Joy to develop an individual style in the latex fashion world – one that builds on structure and texture. Pieces from Joy’s 2010/11 collection take inspiration from 17th century Damascus glass with clean architectural silhouettes, applique and laser cut.


The 2011/12 collection takes this textural journey further, borrowing streamline, Deco geometry and translating it through quilting and paneling. Her most recent pieces are adorned with sensual and tactile Art Nouveau embossing.

A proud Northerner, Joy graduated from the Cambridge School of Art in 2010 and is now based in Brighton, Sussex.
