Kihnu

Last Sunday I got a letter from a publishing company Herznote Verlag. They are publishing a magazine called CIRCUS Fashion and they asked if I would be interested in collaborating with them. Their main goal was to connect bloggers from all over the world to contribute toward the production of the magazine and my task was to sail to Kihnu island with their journalist and take pictures of the dresses of the Kihnu people.
As I said yes I found myself on the ferry to Kihnu Friday morning and me, the journalist Wesley and his girlfriend Nele visited the island, a museum and a traditional Kihnu home. I got some great pictures and you'll be seeing them in September when the magazine comes out but till then here are some pictures for you to get the essentials of the amazingly beautiful island.

Eelmisel pühapäeval sain meili kirjastuselt Herznote Verlag Saksamaalt. Nad avaldavad ajakirja CIRCUS Fashion ja küsisid, kas ma oleksin huvitatud koostööst nendega. Nende peamine eesmärk on kaasata ajakirja blogijaid üle maailma ning minu ülesandeks oli sõita Kihnule koos nende ajakirjanikuga ning jäädvustada saart ning selle elanikke ja nende rahvariideid. Kuna võtsin pakkumise vastu leidsin end reede hommikul praamilt Kihnule ning mina, Welsey, nende ajakirjanik ning tema tüdruksõber Nele käisime saarel ringi, külastasime Kihnu muuseumi ning traditsioonilist Kihnu talu. Sain palju ilusaid pilte rahvariiete tegemisest ning armsatest Kihnulastest, mida saate näha Septebris, kui ajakiri ilmub, aga seniks on siin teile paar pilti minu reisist üldiselt.

  1. Ossa, eriti hea võimalus. Palju, palju meeldib see, et tegemist saksa ajakirjaga. Saksa keel mu suur armastus ju!

  2. Päris tätoveering?
    Ma olen pikemat aega unistanud rukkilille tätoveerimisest samale kohale.

  9. gretecullen - müügile tuleb 50 000 numbrit üle maailma, nii et ehk isegi eestisse, aga täiesti kindlalt ei oska öelda.

  12. Oh, väga põnev, et ka Eesti kultuuri niimoodi seal kajastatakse. Sinu pildid on muidugi jälle ulmeliselt ilusad.

    NB. Kust sa said Chaneli tattoosid ja kas sul on terve komplekt olemas?

  13. Kust sa said neid tatoveeringuid? Ma niinii tahan neid, kuid igalt poolt, kus otsisin on välja müüdud või out of stock.
