Artists Recreate Traditional Slavic Wreaths as Floral Headdresses
When traditional Slavic wreaths morph into gorgeous floral headdresses, it proves fabulous fashion comes in many forms…
Many cultures lose some of their traditions as time passes, but with a little artistic ingenuity, there are ways to keep some of the most time-honoured traditions alive.
Photographer Ula Kóska and makeup artist and stylist Beata Bojda collaborated on a photo series featuring traditional Slavic head wreaths specific to Polish culture and history. But Bojda used her background in styling and makeup to put a modern spin on the wreaths, and the results are stunning.
The Polish artists collaborated on this beautiful Slavic-themed photo shoot in order to highlight traditional Polish folk culture. Wreaths and flowers played an important part in both religious and secular ceremonies such as marriages, funerals, festivals and Easter, and the wreaths in the pictures were made according to traditional methods. This involves tightly twisting paper into flower shapes, a technique that comes from the Polish “Opoczno” area in the heart of the country, and as you can see, the effect is nothing short of stunning.
