Tiia Vanhatapio: Druidess

This one grabbed my attention immediately with the 2 opening models with reindeer antlers strapped to their heads. The line is based on the 1954 film “The White Deer”. Basic plot, woman goes to shaman for love life help and gets turned into a white reindeer vampire. I think this film needs to go on the netflix list! The theme is carried through the line with images of reindeer. fur, witchy druidess dresses, and long flowing robes.

Islaet opened with a solo opera performance that melted away into fun club inspired line. The themes explored were the contrasting of high society and the night life of an it girl. The line included more sophisticated day wear with more casual fun evening look.
