The wonders of the past

The concept for us was of reconnecting with home feelings and nostalgia and to rediscover historical references and present them in a modern setup. This work was made in one of London's central parks but gave us a flashback of soviet elements, referencing to fashion trends from different periods, like swinging 80s, classy 70s and soviet 90s, focusing on elements that almost felt like our own DNA. Our character has many faces and she feels like she can be anything - from romantic, timid chic to reckless rebel. Matching with nature or being in total contrast with the entourage, the character develops but still stays true to her inner self.
