Modern Ukrainian Women Wearing Traditional Crowns Give New Meaning To An Ancient Tradition


Slavic workshop Treti Pivni (translated as Third Rooster) is bringing back old traditions in their latest series focussing on women and children in Ukrainian headdresses.

Traditionally, these floral headdresses were worn as a sign of their “purity” and marital eligibility. In pre-Christian times, they were even 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 told Vogue Magazine.
