Besides the end of the Mayan calender and the potential end of the world predictions, what else is happening in 2012? The new year will not only bring us a new President, but New Years resolutions and the price of gold is said to reach $2000 per ounce. Oh and lets not forget The Giants will have another chance to win the World Series.
2012 is the Year of the Dragon, a symbol of power, superiority and rule. In Chinese astrology the dragon is the only animal of the zodiac year that is not real. A myth and legend to the Chinese, a person born in the year of the dragon is said to not be shy, but to demand respect and to be a worthwhile ally. Cheers to all the dragons out there and to those born in the new year as well!
The 2012 Summer Olympics will be hosted in London. With 35 total sports and over 300 competitions, we will all be tuned in to see the world’s top athletes compete to win GOLD! With diving and gymnastics at the top of our list of must-sees, a trip to the Olympics would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But hey, for most us it may be a trip in front of our Tivo’s, at least we won’t be too jet-lagged to catch the action!
2012 will be a great year in fashion and fashion exhibits. The De Young Museum will host a new exhibition, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, from March 24-August 19. So you have plenty of time to delve into the provocative works of Mr. Gaultier. And here’s to hoping that the Alexander McQueen collection curated at the NYC Met goes on tour and visits us here in SF.
Fashion trends are already set for Spring and mint will be “THE” color of 2012, along with an array of beautiful new shades from Pantone. Runways have been busy with models and new looks, be it color blocking with Marc by Marc, bold prints by Derek Lam or the pale pastels of Carolina Herrera, what will you be wearing in 2012???
“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.
