Shovava, meaning “cheeky” and “playful,” is a unique line of women’s clothing that features amazingly intricate natural details often found throughout nature. Created by Australia-based artist Roza Kamitova, each gorgeous and elegant piece is covered with the artist’s hand drawn paintings and prints.
Kamitova originally worked for eight years in the fashion industry until she decided that the world could use a bit more creativity in clothing designs. So, she began reworking thrift store items, altering and reconstructing them, and hand-painting them to create completely unique pieces. In 2011, Shovava was launched and the beautiful, nature-inspired line was born.
“I observe nature and find inspiration in the smallest details,” explains Kamitova. “Maybe it’s a butterfly’s wing or the patterned cell structure of a leaf. Maybe it’s a feather or a raven perched on a tree limb. I take in what I see in the natural world and then create my pieces.”
