Stylish Orthodox Women's Fashion in Russia...



My father sent me a link to an article on a fashion show for Orthodox women's clothing that took place in Russia in February. There are some great pictures and the outfits are very stylish! I think that most of us could pull off the looks with what we have in our closets right now! I also like the different ways the women wear their head coverings... very chic! I translated the article on Bable Fish. The phrasing is a little off, but I think that you'll get the point!

Emma,

Do you wear a head covering?

My biggest problem with head-coverings is they are always falling or being pulled off by the baby.

Actually, when we moved to our new church, I quit wearing one, since no one else did. My sense of sharing an understood meaning with the other women was lost, and I didn't want to feel like I thought I was more... something. I miss it sometimes. Maybe I'll ponder this and post about it...

The ones in the pictures are very beautiful.

Thank you so much for this link! What a blessing to live in an Orthodox country (even though I love the red, white and blue :)). This is the perfect example of how being modest doesn't have to deprive you of looking nice.

Wow! An Orthodox fashion show... whoduthunk? :) I like it, though. Good, classic inspiration. It's cool that they included head coverings (although I realize it's always a personal preference/decision).

Michelle said...

The headcoverings are obviously optional. Can you tell your non orthodox readers what the cover symbolizes?

That is great to see - thanks Dad!

Phyllis said...

This made me smile. :-) I passed it on to someone else, and she blogged about it, too!

I also thought it was interesting that they included the headcoverings. As far as I knew, only matushki cover their heads all the time? For everyone else, it's only in church. (I'm not Orthodox, but I have lived in Russia, and consider Russia my home. I could have written what Monica wrote. I have a terrible time with headcoverings and babies, and I also only wear them in churches where there is the fellowship of other women wearing them. That means I miss them now, in America.)

Mat. Emma, I am very much enjoying your blog! It is wonderful. I hope you don't mind me linking to your blog from mine. I really enjoyed the photos and the article. I am cradle Greek Orthodox Presvytera with a love for Russia (my major was Russian History) and I have a Russian SIL of two years as well. I am so grateful to Phyllis for sending me the link to your blog. It's lovely!

Mimi said...

I think I need lessons on getting my headcovering to look like that.

But, I very much agree that this shows you can be stylish and modest at the same time.

Buffy said...

Those photos are very encouraging. It is so hard to find dresses or skirts at the moment that even come below the knee but these women look charming in their outfits.

Christy said...

Thanks for posting these! Is such an encouragement to see all skirts. I wear only skirts as well and I hate the fact that some are always comparing me to Amish.

See!! Skirts can be stylish!!

It's nice on them because they're tall and slender, but not for the average American woman who is either curvy or short (w/o stick-straight bodies)--we'll look like a clumpy mess (i.e., frumpy)
