Fashion Inspiration: Crystal City

As a young girl, I had a deep fascination with crystals, rocks and stones. So much to the point that I had quite the rock collection (I know Maija did too). I recall some of my favorites from my rock collection being amethyst, desert rose and fools gold. I think I may have even found a fossilized dinosaur tooth once, however this is still yet to be proven. It wasn't just the colorful and sparkly features that attracted me to these small treasures. As I ran my hands along the buckets filled with smooth jade, tigers eye and other crystals, I realized that I loved them so much because, like snowflakes, they are all so different even if they are the same.—-

For fashion inspiration today, I'd like to share some images with you from Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts 4th year student, Irina Shaposhnikova. With crystals as a main source of inspiration, Irina represents them perfectly with strong, clean lines and irredescence in her 2009 collection, entitled "Crystallographica".
