When Svetlana first saw the dress, she thought of “The Birth of Venus” by Botticelli. I can totally see the pose is inspired by that art work, and here is the twist: instead of Venus, Svetlana illustrated the Mermaid with her new shiny legs. I find this idea to be very interesting, and the Mermaid image suits the collection very well.
