Amazing Felted Bolero’s by Tiana Agapcheva
While searching for a bolero to wear to my best friends wedding (no that isn’t a movie title but it should be) I came across the amazing work of Tiana Agapcheva on Etsy. I am not surprised to find out that I am way out of the loop on this one since she has been recognized by many websites and even personal friends of mine were familiar with her work.
Tiana is an independent fashion designer from Russia.She has a degree and postdegree diploma in architecture.
You can see some of her collection at her youtube channel:http://www.youtube.com/user/TianaAgapcheva.
Tiana donates a percentage of sales to the “Give Life” Foundation. How awesome is that?? Talented and generous. Truly a one-of-a-kind artist. http://www.podari-zhizn.ru/ The founders of the charity are actresses Dina Korzun and Chulpan Khamatova who have been helping the leukemia children for several years now.
Her bolero’s are hand made and extremely eye catching. They are definitely unique and you can just tell that Tiana adores what she does. Her talent shines from every piece she does. My favorite color is red and I practically fell over when I saw this beauty.
The detail is just jaw dropping. Here are some more gorgeous examples
Do you not adore those little feather cap sleeves?
This one is just too cute with the little polka dots
Wouldn’t this one be so perfect over your wedding dress if it got chilly or part of your going away outfit after the wedding? Simply to die for
Tiana makes more than just boleros. Check out all her wonderful creations for sale at her Etsy Page or visit her blog
