Fashion and surface design reflecting Baltic heritage
#CreatingBeautyThatProtects


It's a third exhibit by Vilma Mare portraying the beauty created to protect us.
First installation of sartorial art filled the space at The General Consulate of Lithuania in New York, USA introducing Baltic indigenous protective mindset where Man and Nature are in harmony.
Second - the space in museum of Lithuanian textiles collected and created by A.+A. Tamosaitis and Vilnius Art Academy. Vilma Mare seeked visual agreement here between foreign and origin culture,  imprinted and sovereign beauty, followed and authentic fashion. Author selected Baltic ornaments by their mythological interface with deities and native nature + their symbolic manifestations. Modern expression of protective signs is achieved by literally layering textiles as cultural tiers, then cutting them open to discover the power of one's origin.

- Designer Ready-To-Wear and Custom Orders (30-500€).
