Out of long forgotten memories of the past, childhood fantasies, black and white old photographs of people whose faces I no longer remember came the hat I named "Nostalgie".
It has a touch of sadness I found in the old letters of lovers who are long gone. Only the words written on the paper remain true and full of passion.
She is full of grace and beauty and all the things you can find in the magic of ascetic pallet of black and white.
I remember standing backstage at the age of 5 breathless, looking at the dancers of Russian ballet rehearsing "Sleeping Beauty". The memory is so far away, but I still remember the whisper of the tulle moving around dancer's tutus...
I remember thinking that I would be willing to give everything I own, including my favorite doll, for an opportunity of being one of them, wrapped in the air of tulle and flying over the stage...
I used to believe that the sea is full of mysterious creatures - mermaids. I used to throw shiny coins in the water thinking that one of them will find my coin and put it in the beautiful treasure chest somewhere on the bottom of the sea. :-)
I always loved Winter and snow.I used to think that snowflakes are sugar powder falling down from the sky because little Angels in the clouds just had their breakfast .
I used to make a wish every time tiny snowflake would land on tip of my nose. :-))) I used to not being afraid of the dark.
I miss the innocence of my own childhood fantasies and the ability to see life as an endless Fairy Tale. This simple fact became my inspiration behind creation of "Nostalgie". :-)
I am wishing you wonderful weekend.The Spring has, finally, arrived, and I am looking forward to the weekend full of sunshine.:-) Sending all of you million kisses from New York!:-)
