Orthodox Fashion

H/T: Here

The first Orthodox women’s clothing store opened recently in Moscow. It is a part of a small “chain” of stores which also exist in Saint Petersburg and Yekaterinburg. The store was named after a story of Pushkin’s and the customers are not only Orthodox, but also women who enjoy a leisurely and comfortable style of dress.

“In Orthodoxy there are no strict canons but there are written rules which are held by all those who go to church. Church dress should be humble, without too much noticeable design. Knees and elbows should be covered, and women should wear headcoverings,” says Jelena Cokolova, one of the founders of the chain of stores „Барышня-Крестьянка“ (named after Puskin’s story “The Lady Peasant”).
