sheep will take over...

This project was inspired by the traditional Dutch folk dress of Staphorst. Yelena was attracted to the structured headpiece that is created by layering elements made from different materials. A metal mould gives shape to the headpiece and is topped by cotton and lace. Yelena was attracted to this unusual combination. She chose to supplement the metal for bicycle tires because that is the symbol of modern Dutch culture. The bicycle tires form a frame over which the garment is draped.
