I chose to work on Vasilisa the beautiful text, to represent her after her marriage to the king. The castle aspect was full of luxurious, richness and elegance. The beautiful became more and more fascinating after being a lovely queen. Her good heart impressed everyone. Characters we’ll be shown in some elegant dresses, coats, capes and all the other accessories that brings richness to their look. Mixing between Baroque and contemporary especially Louis XIII and Elie Saab my designs will include some historical and trending elements in the same time. Both of those two Phenomena reflects Luxury, embroideries, rich fabrics and classiness. I’m attracted by men’s costume in the baroque period especially during Louis XIII back in time, and I would like to use those elements like one-shoulder cape, luxurious gold embroideries, studs, small waist, belts and Basque at the hips. Those elements were specified for men’s costume at Louis XIII period, but I would like to use some of them in a trending way for women’s. As fabric I’ll be using a lot of velvet, embroidered fabric, lace and nude mesh with all the beaded branches that I’ll be adding to my designs to bring that woods and ice aspect since Vasilisa became the queen of woods after Baba Yaga’s death. Those beaded branches will make all the difference to make my concept clearer and more artistic. Vasilisa : And after all the problems that faced Vasilisa, God send her a tender woman, to take care of her and guide her to improve her life, So she got married with the king. Vasilisa’s mission wasn’t just about being a fascinating queen in a castle but it was about being a peaceful queen of woods instead of the cruel Baba-Yaga. This beautiful took care of all the animals that helped her to survive, those innocent creatures that were badly treated. As well, Queen Vasilisa brought love and happiness to the castle where she lived happily ever after with her respectful Tsarevich, her father and the town woman. Vasilisa’s look will be very lightly presented. Since she was the birth of light for her entourage in the forest as in the kingdom, her dress will communicate some artistic effects like beaded branches, embroidery to bring elegance, velvet to show her richness and transparency to reflect luxury. Adjusted waist with a velvet belt, a one-shoulder cape and a Basque to keep the link with the historical elements.
