Sheep Will Take Over

This project was inspired by the traditional folk dress of Staphorst in the Netherlands. Yelena was attracted to the structured headpiece that is created through layering pieces made from different material. The headpiece is formed by metal and topped by lace. Yelena was attracted to this unnatural combination. She chose to supplement the metal for bycicle tires because that is the symbol of modern Dutch culture. The bycicle tires form a frame over which the garment is shaped.
