SUBCONSCIOUS SHADOW F/W 2019
The simplest and most accessible ingredient for inner self are stories.
This collection is presenting an insight, perceptions and morals of the inner psych through exploration of “Narodnye Skaski” , Russian folk/fairy tales and mythology, which had an extensive influence on my life.
The exploration of this topic is through spiritual, psychological, Philosophical and cultural research; By approaching and understanding the archetypes of Baba Yaga and Koschei the immortal, understanding that they are more than just witches; They are a great nature god and goddess, possessing the power of both life and death like nature herself.
it isn’t correct to categorize them as evil, any more than it would be to describe nature itself with this word. Nature is amoral, sometimes fantastically destructive and cruel, and other times just as life-giving and nurturing.
Society mostly based on categorizing and giving "nicknames" such as "a witch" to a strong personalities, different and even big leaders or public personas. This insight will make you understand that to grow fully into who we are and who we are meant to be, there is a need to understand those dark contents.
As part of my ongoing effort for Knitwear, Which nature and the forest are the symbol and main inspiration, Ethical sourcing is the main course.
