Elena Salmistraro's craft is unique. She looks for inspiration in Ethnochoreology – the detailed study of ethnic dance. Dance as a form of art has unparalleled rhythm and has always been a part of human culture. Scarlet Splendour presents I Danaztori by Elena Salmistraro. Borrowed from the classical dances of India and the grandeur of the dancers' costumes. However, nothing in the collection can be recognised as old fashioned or even traditional.
