Modern Women Wear Traditional Ukrainian Crowns, Giving New Meaning To Ancient History

Slavic workshop Treti Pivni (translated as Third Rooster) recently created a new series of portraits.  These portraits feature women and children wearing traditional Ukrainian headdresses. They created them to pay homage to their homeland while sharing a message of peace, tenderness, and knowledge of the Ukrainian culture with the world.

The floral headdresses are traditionally worn by young, unmarried women as a sign of their “purity” and marital eligibility. In pre-Christian times, they were thought to protect innocent girls from evil spirits. Currently, after the 2014 Ukrainian Revolution, the headdresses are being worn in daily life to symbolize national pride.

“I think we are coming back to floral themes because fashion is starting to react on wars that we are having around the globe. We need some tenderness.”, model Nadiia Shapoval said
