This statement is literally sewn into my collection. I've sewn my dresses from the carved letters of each word.
The courage and involvement of Belarusian women in the peaceful protests of 2020 served as the inspiration behind the creation of this collection.
I named it LOVE.
Love is the new weapon. This is what I believe in.
BEYOND THE FOG
THE FOG WILL LIFT AND THE SUN WILL RISE
The collection continued the narrative of the debut collection and drew inspiration from the emerging guerrilla movement of Belarusians supporting Ukraine.
The collection embodies Mother Earth, representing femininity, vitality, strength, and protection. The color palette draws inspiration from the Belarusian landscape: swamp green represents bogs and coniferous forests, blue represents lakes and rivers, and dark red signifies the sun emerging above the horizon. The bog is akin to a mythical creature, offering shelter and protection to its inhabitants while mercilessly devouring and destroying intruders, recycling them. Eventually, the fog will dissipate, and the sun will rise. The Earth will come alive, and the waters will regain their purity. The theme of partisans runs parallel to this concept, as the swamps and forests provide refuge and protection, serving as their home. Belarusians persistently fight for their freedom, whether from underground or abroad.
