Howard Sochurek photos of Christian Dior’s models in Moscow 1959. inspired me to create this series of collages. At 1959 the Soviet Union was very poor contry, people don’t even think about fashion, there were no Couture Houses, no even mass market brands, so in the soviet croud models in Haute Couture dresses looks like some Aliens.
Today our politicians wear the most expensive brands and it was interesting to see the contrast between the models in Haute Couture ss 2016 and fed Ukrainian “elite”.
This Collages based on photoes by “Glavred” from the Petro Poroshenko’s inauguration just after the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity.
