Aleksandra Vargas (Russia/Dominica)

By September 15, 2020Fashion Contest 2020

I was born in Moscow to a Russian mother, and a Dominican father. Through my parents, I have a deep appreciation for both Slavic and Caribbean culture which I strive to express through my art. This competition is a great opportunity for me to express my unique background. As a person of mixed heritage I find that I have a foot in both worlds but do not wholly belong to either. This dress that I created for FusionFest represents a new cultural identity and blending of traditions.
