Traditional floral crowns are being reintroduced by Ukrainian women to show their national pride.

Treti Pivni (which translates to “Third Rooster”), a Slavic workshop of stylists and photographers, has decided to revive one of Ukraine’s most spectacular traditions by giving it a new meaning. They’ve created a series of portraits of modern Ukrainian ladies wearing traditional flower headdresses.

These headdresses were traditionally worn by young, unmarried women to demonstrate their “purity” and marriage suitability. However, the artists are now utilizing them as a reminder of Ukrainian identity during the country’s difficult times. With Russia’s continued political and physical pressure, the country’s integrity is under jeopardy, and unification is more important than ever.

“I think we’re returning back to floral motifs because fashion is starting to respond to the battles that we’re experiencing throughout the world,” model Nadiia Shapoval told Vogue Magazine. We’re in desperate need of some kindness.”
