One visit to the botanical garden in Moscow inspired this project. While visiting, a variety of references had been taken. But in personal opinion, the Black Orchid was a star. Also, it was great luck to observe how to blossom alive.
Orchids are one of my best favorite flowers. And interweaving it with the famous Art Deco seemed just natural. I thought about those glamorous ladies who are always shining. I assumed that they didn’t need a huge bag or even a purse – how could you dance carrying such baggage. So, the Lady Slipper Orchid feature – the unique bag – made me think that any glamorous lady has to have her lipstick just literary at hand.
I’ve never tried couture embroidery before this project. So this project inspired me to learn and study such embroidery professionally.
