Teodora Mitrovska: ‘The Modern Woman’
Fashion student Teodora Mitrovska explored the idea of 'The Modern Woman', based on advice from 1936
Teodora was inspired by modern YouTube make-up tutorial videos, and experimented with some of the tips given in the book. Her video reflected on some of the more unusual chapters, like ‘How to use the Bathroom Intelligently’.
Teodora’s short film explores how feminine identity was constructed through books and advice manuals aimed at women in the 1930s.
Her witty and irreverent approach demonstrated a fresh look at one of the many advice books in MoDA’s collections.
