Traditional Armenian clothing has always fascinated me; I took some time to find and look through the very small archive of old Armenian photographs with traditional dress and listened to stories by my parents describing some of the clothes they’ve encountered on old and now extinct Armenians who’d still dress that way, outside of theatricality. No doubt that this fashion is something I want to and will include in my videos.

Looking through some costumes and fashion photography, I also took interest in some of Natalie Shau’s work, which is layered with great symbolism.
