Women Birds by Elisaveta Sivas

The 29th of February comes only once every four years. This means today is one extra day for us to live life to the fullest. One extra day to prepare for spring. One extra day of winter. One extra day of trial. One extra day for us to learn how to fly. One more chance to make it, and leave the misery behind.

The moment I saw Elisaveta Sivas' theatrical collection, Birds, which she presented at the Habitus Baltija International Exhibition 2010 in Riga, Latvia, the costumes spoke to me. The costumes originally represent oriental women-birds, coming from a fairy tale country, and I particularly loved these two:


I would call this costume The Smiling Woman-Bird, because of the model's lovely smile...

And this I would say is The Defiant Woman-Bird, again because of the model's expression. By the way, the photos were taken by Alex Bowcock. If you want to see all the collection, please visit Elisaveta's Etsy shop, here.
