'Enchanted Forest Fairies' by Alexandra Zaharova and Ilya Plotnikov features romantic fashions with an avant-garde edge. From butterfly-shaped fascinators to pleated collars and diaphanous blouses, these styles are something I'd imagine a modern Maid Marian wearing.

My favorite outfit is the gray top and over-the-boot leggings paired with the white bubble skirt. Which is yours?

Implications - Fashion collections like this break away from the norm or the expected by courageously exploring thematic elements that are fantastical in nature. By defying the status quo, companies can entice consumers who are looking to stand out from the crowd and who are sick of the same old clothing year after year.
