Russian photographer Anastasia Bogomolova's book is a fascinating blend of Russian textiles, '80s and '90s clothes and styling, and Soviet fashion magazines.

"Lookbook, where I use my mother's old clothes, 1990s' cosmetics and grandmother's fabrics as a background, has grown out of a desire to restore the images of women of elder generations in the family. But eventually it has turned into a story about the search for my own femininity and sexuality, my first idea of which was formed by Soviet fashion magazines. Working on this project, I reconstructed a girl's ritual of fitting her mother's dresses, trying to rethink childish experience already in adulthood, when Im approaching the age when my mother gave birth to me." (Anastasia Bogomolova).
