As mentioned in an earlier blog I am interested in the lifestyle of people and their way of living. Through further research I came to the conclusion that I wanted to focus on the lifestyles of both peasants and royalty during the Russian Revolution, for my final year collection. I'm particularly interested in the Romanov Family during this time (1917) and their brutal attacking. Pushing this idea further I am hoping to challenge the notions of dress within social divisions during the revolution; what defined classes, indeviduals, employers and/or soldiers, royalty (and the list goes on)?
I will further expand on this post - but for now just keeping it updated!
