Traditional Floral Crowns Are Being Reintroduced By Ukrainian Women To Show Their National Pride

Stunning portraits of women and children wearing traditional Ukrainian headdresses by Treti Pivni Slavic Workshop (also known as the Third Rooster). It was made to honor their homeland and spread a message of peace, tenderness, and knowledge of Ukrainian culture.

As a symbol of their “purity” and “eligibility” for marriage, these floral headdresses are traditionally worn by young, unmarried women throughout Asia. Even in pre-Christian times, they were regarded as a deterrent against evil spirits. The headdresses are now worn in public as a symbol of national pride.

Model Nadiia Shapoval told Vogue Magazine that she believes floral themes are making a comeback as the fashion industry begins to respond to the global conflicts taking place. We’re in desperate need of some compassion.
