Featuring Fashion Designer/Artist Zita-Barbara + GIVEAWAY!

Butterflies are not just beautiful animals with colorful wings and vibrant patterns - they are considered a symbol of change, resurrection, transformation, and even life itself. No wonder artists have been drawing inspiration from them for thousands of years!

Designer and all-round artist Zita-Barbara paints butterflies as a representation of positive changes and uses her stunning artwork to adorn her fashion and lifestyle accessory collections. 

"Butterflies represent the beauty of transformation, which is what I believe all beauty products, clothing lines, and women seek to do when investing in beauty rituals" explains designer and artist Zita-Barbara. Her "Thousands of Butterflies" dress is getting a lot of exposure and expected to make its appearance in International Fashion Week hosted in Las Vegas in 2019. The dress is made up of thousands of hand-painted black and white butterflies in the style of a modern-Victorian corseted dress design. The idea for this dress is inspired by her signature butterfly paintings.

 As an artist she constructs these paintings around times in her personal life that she considers " challenging but transformational." Over time she has developed a small body of work she is going to gather into a book which will include her art-inspired fashion work, paintings, and inspirational messages of self-care through challenging life experiences. 

"I believe beauty is an inward quality as much as it is outward. It is very much an expression of how you feel inwardly. It is just as important to feel beautiful as it is to look beautiful. Once a person discovers this sort of beauty, the beauty of their knowledge, light, experiences, it brings new meaning to living beautifully. A newfound gratitude for trials because without challenges we could not have come into contact with our strengths, or developed our weaknesses. This type of beauty is possibly the hardest to obtain because it cannot be bought; but it can be worn as self-confidence. I feel that's the message of my fashion work and why I chose my butterfly-art as the theme for this upcoming fashion week." 

"A butterfly is proof one can go through a great deal of darkness and emerge
as something beautiful."

You can purchase butterfly-inspired fashion from this artist on her online VIDA fashion collection, including the black and white butterfly painting which inspired the "Thousands of Butterflies" dress (set to make its appearance on the International Fashion Week runway) here:
