Costume designer Ieva Immertreija from Latvia fell in love with Croatian nature, warm and kind people and their true respect for art and fashion last year when she came to work with the Dubrovnik Summer Festival. This year, Ieva got an opportunity to come back to the Dubrovnik Summer Festival and in addition, to make a photoshoot with young and talented photographer Doris Raguz, who is known in Dubrovnik for her beautiful fashion photographs.
This photoshoot is made in honor of hast 21st Century, because people nowdays forget what they are and where are they coming from. They are living on pavement and are always in a hurry.Women are becoming more and more grounded, more and more business ladies in man's suits..
Magic island of Lokrum where 1000 rabbits are running around your feet and peacocks are screaming at the beautiful sunset is great for the role of Fairy and Pixie land where magic can happen. There is no rush, there you can feel unconditional love and be gorgeous as you are. And also: wear Fairy dresses and Pixie crowns!
