At Pitaya Yoga we sketch all designs by hand and take you on a little journey. Read about the meaning and inspiration of the newest design here!
The 'equality' collection has now arrived and looking at all new arrivals in the online store there are many details to discover, from apple-eating women to saxophone playing jazz musicians.
How is this all connected to the topic of equality?
The topic of gender equality was important for the label to address so they decided to stay with the topic of the change in fashion that came along with the gender equality movement.
For the 'Power Pants' design they informed themselves about the women that started to wear and feel comfortable in pants instead of skirts, which surprisingly is not such a long ago - in the 1930's. Basically just your grandma's time.
Both versions light and dark blue are showing three of the most well-known of these women: Marlene Dietrich, Katharine Hepburn, Coco Chanel. Female powerhouses that are inspiring, strong and fiercely independent actresses, fashion designers and vocalists.
These are inspirations for the drawings of co-founder and designer Irina : an empowering and motivating vibe for women to continue creating, standing in for each other and lifting each other up.
This design donates to a British organisation that is fighting against the practice of Female Genital Cutting (FGC): 'the partial or complete removal of a girl’s external genitals. There are no known health benefits, and in fact the girl’s body is physically harmed and damaged as a result of the practice and the removal of healthy tissue when her genitals are cut away.'
Seeing how far women have come without forgetting how far they still have in front of them. Donating to Orchid Project in the UK.
