One visit to the botanical garden in Moscow inspired this project. While visiting, the variety of references had been taking. But in personal opinion, the Black Orchid was definitely a star. Also, it was great luck to observe how to blossom alive.

Orchids are one of my best favorite flowers. And interweave it with my favorite Art Deco seemed just natural. I thought about those glamorous ladies who are always shining. I assumed that they don’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.
