In September Lúdmila delivered a talk about Slovak fashion design and Slavic mythology as a source of inspiration. Now it is time for Estonian mythology! During her stay in Tallinn Lúdmila has been working on a small collection of headwear inspired by Estonian traditional costume and folk legends, especially those about the skies. Hämarik and Koit, Birds Way (Milky Way), Moon and Star, etc. These stories are probably familiar to you. How about taking a look at how a foreigner’s eye sees them?
Free entrance. All are welcome!
