I’ve made forest-folk dresses!
Patterns are hand-drawn by me from nature and then printed on the natural fabric. Later I designed the dress and in the end of pretty long journey they came to life! So excited!
Dresses itself (in very limited quantity), more photos and all the details about them are available on my Etsy
The main inspiration for me here is the term anthropoecosystem (at least existing in my native language) which, saying simply, means dependence the culture of the specific Land features. How do local biodiversity influence the folk art, how the local nature is reflected in myths and how do the landscape creates narratives? These dresses from imaginary forest people, reclusive modern green witches and herbalists, they are filled with their dark fairytales and mushroom related myths.
Making clothes is so wonderful!
Alexandra Dvornikova’s art is gorgeous and evocative, and these clothes she’s designed match the aesthetic perfectly!

A tiny northern girl tries to play with a puppy. A small bells is sewn on the girl’s clothes so that parents can hear where the child is.
My baby sister used to songs song very much like this little one’s. ☺☺
The girl is most likely Nenets, an indigenous people from arctic Russia (thanks @casijaz !)

“#big party at the metropolitan museum”
It’s at a museum?!? Why?!?
I thought rich people had fancier buildings than that. Hope it’s not a publicly funded museum.
@wreckitremy the met gala is a fundraiser for the museum. That’s why tickets to the party are so expensive. It’s a very common fundraising tactic for museums and other similar places to throw galas where rich people come and donate exorbitant amounts of money. The met is publicly funded, which is why AOC and other NY officials go for free, but the fundraiser helps cover the gaps in funding. It’s in the museum’s best interest to make it a huge spectacle with lots of super high profile people because then more people will want to pay to get into the party, thus covering more of their costs and allowing them to keep museum admission tickets as low as possible

Hair bias is a real problem. It’s rarely talked about, but it affects millions globally.
This World Afro Day, we’re calling time on this.
Whatever your hair type, join the movement to Change the Facts, Not the Fro. In celebrating our Afro hair this weekend in all of its versatility, help us continue the conversation by tagging us in your pics @worldafroday.
Let’s wear and share our hair with pride!
This is a great example of using unconventional data visualization where it adds not detracts from the message
World Afro Day is September 15!
