VICTORIANA MODERN FT YHORDANKA
PHOTOPGRAHY BY ALEXANDER WONG + JON SOUTH
To the freewheeling psychedelia that has filtered into pop culture and fairly saturated the spring runways, the Victoriana wave is . Often dismissed as priggish (perhaps not an entirely undeserved reputation), the six decades of Queen Victoria’s reign were also an aesthetically rich time. Think of the Pre-Raphaelites , the sumptuous designs of William Morris, or the era’s fanciful architecture. It’s little wonder that Victorian times continue to resonate today.
The compact aesthetic of impossible structure and deviled details found in Victorian style makes it an understandable obsession for 21st century fashion as Yhordanka demonstarates.
