This beautiful dress is from #Albania 🇦🇱 sent from our fan Céline who now lives in France. It was lovingly handmade by her husband's aunt! Thank you so much Céline and family. We're so honored to have this in our #JoeyWorldProject collection. I looked up photos of Albania and wow, it is a stunningly beautiful country. I've only known Albania as where Mother Teresa was from but having this traditional dress from there in my home makes me feel like I've traveled there. Thank you so much for giving us a taste of Albania. And thank you for teaching me the word urime! 💕😘
Здравейте! That’s “hello” in the Bulgarian Cyrillic language! This beautiful Thracian folklore costume comes all the way from #Bulgaria 🇧🇬 from our new friends Petia, Dimitar and their sweet baby Georgi! Thank you so much for sending such a beautiful piece of Bulgarian culture to add to our #JoeyWorldProject! This traditional dress is just one of many different types of traditional garb in Bulgaria but this particular kind is from Petia’s hometown area called Stara Zagora which is in the middle of Bulgaria. I failed to find any information about the history of this dress online but I did what I always do before these Joey World Project posts and read up on each country featured and a take a lesson on history. I learned so much about Bulgaria wow! I did find a couple interesting facts about the country of Bulgaria that might be worth sharing. You’ll have to confirm for me Petia, but I read that Bulgarians shake their heads to mean yes and nod for when they mean no. Actually Joey does the same thing lately. She’ll shake her head when I offer her something to eat and then will gobble it right immediately afterwards. Maybe she’s part Bulgarian haha! Bulgaria is also the oldest country in Europe that hasn’t changed its name since it was first established. You go Bulgaria. This happened in 681 AD. Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, was founded 7000 years ago and is claimed to be the second oldest city in Europe! Wow! This is probably a terrible representation of what is such a unique and colorful country but I’m so glad that I was able to get a little history lesson about Bulgaria and share with you what one of their beautiful traditional dresses looks like!
Today's #JoeyWorldProject costume represents #Indonesia! 🇮🇩 I was waiting for Joey to be big enough to fit into this beautiful #kebaya and I’m so happy now that she finally can! Thank you so much @mochi_kids for sending this outfit and the basket! The kebaya is a blouse-dress combination that is traditionally worn by women in Indonesia as well as other countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Burma, southern Thailand, Cambodia and the southern part of the Philippines. I found out a really cool fact about the Indonesian kebaya which I have to share. During World War 2, Indonesian female prisoners refused to wear western dresses allocated to them and instead wore the kebaya as a display of solidarity to separate themselves from fellow Chinese, Europeans and Eurasian inmates. Also the only woman present during Indonesia's Proclamation of Independence, journalist and activist SK Trimurti, wore the kebaya, cementing it as the female dress of nationalism. After Indonesian independence, the kebaya was appointed as a national costume of Indonesian women. Wow! What an amazing history behind this dress! Love learning something new about these traditional outfits. The history of this particular one really inspired me. 💁🏻🇮🇩💕
I am so excited to share with you today’s #JoeyWorldProject that came all the way from #Mongolia. 🇲🇳 My dear friends Agnes, Jene-Robin and Jane came back from a trip there recently where they met with Zoe who gifted this gorgeous Mongolian costume to me. Thank you so much Zoe! This costume needs to be framed and displayed! Thank you ladies also for the horse doll and postcard! The Mongolian traditional costume is called the deel (plural). The Del for everyday wear is gray, brown or some other dark color while the holiday Del, which Joey is wearing here, normally comes in a bright blue, green or claret silk with a silk sash of contrasting color several meters long. The sash serves as a soft corset which helps long riders on horseback. The Del comes with wide, cup-shaped sleeves nicknamed “hooves.” It helps protect the hands from the cold and from injuries while doing hard labor. I have to tell you some amazing facts about Mongolia. Mongolia is referred to as “Land of the Blue Sky” because it has over 260 sunny days a year! There are also 13 times more horses than humans and sheep outnumber humans 35 to 1. A more interesting historical fact about Mongolia is that women had more rights compared to other surrounding Asian societies. For instance in the Mongol Empire, women were able to fight in armies, receive an advanced military education, tend to animal herds, and even assume positions of political power. Mothers and their children would stay at the back of the armies, making the Mongols appear far larger than they actually were. Isn’t that wild? The more I do these Joey World Project posts, the more I learn how incredible each country is and the more beautiful the world is to me. I hope you all enjoying this project as much as I am!
Hola! ¿Qué más? Today’s #JoeyWorldProject dress comes all the way from #Colombia! 🇨🇴 Thank you so much Paola for sending us this stunning dress! The dress Joey is wearing here is a very iconic Colombian dress, called "La pollera colorá (colorada)" which means "the scarlet skirt." This dress is from the northern part of Colombia, the Atlantic coast, where unfortunately thousands of slaves arrived to the country and spread to the rest of the continent. The origin of this costume was from these slaves who would dance during the night by the sea, holding candles and imitating the movements of waves with their wide skirts. It originated as a courtship dance meant to mimic Colombia's colonizers. They would dance to the rhythm of African drums and indigenous flutes call gaits and the mix of this is what they call today the #Cumbia. Thank you Paola for also sending the YouTube links to these dances. They're so vibrant and exciting to watch! I may have to dress Joey back in this dress for a dance! Thank you!
So happy to share another #JoeyWorldProject costume that came from our new friend Aom in #Thailand! 🇹🇭 She sent us this beautiful Thai Chakkri Dress that I’m hoping I put on Joey correctly! I did a little reading on this costume and found out that historically, Thailand didn’t have a national costume as there were many different ethnic groups who had their own folk clothing. After Queen Sirikit and King Bhumibhol Adolyadej traveled the world in 1960, the Queen felt the need for a modern national costume suitable for formal wear in Thailand. The Queen researched and conducted data from historical records of royal dresses and 8 official designs were developed and promoted in the end. These 8 types of dresses are the Ruean Ton, Chit Lada, Amarin, Borom Bhiman, Chakkri, Dusit, Chakkrabhat and Siwalai. The one Joey is wearing here is the Chakkri costume with loincloth. I had very little reference on how to outfit the gold accessories on Joey so please forgive me if this costume is worn differently from what is shown here. Regardless, this is such a beautiful piece of clothing and I am so honored to have Joey wear this. She may be wearing at least the bottoms for the rest of this season! Thank you so much Aom!
Salam my friends! How incredible is this dress from #Azerbaijan? 🇦🇿 Thank you so much Minai, Magsud and Arzu for following our journey with the #JoeyWorldProject and for adding this beautiful piece to the collection. When I opened the package and saw this costume for the first time, I literally gasped out loud in awe. Do you guys know where Azerbaijan is? It is squeezed in between Russia and Iran and also borders Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and the Caspian Sea. Now more about this gorgeous dress! The typical Azerbaijani women’s traditional dress are made from brightly colored fabrics and depending on which materials are used to embellish the dress, it can show the social status of the family. The style of the clothes can also reflect the marital status, for instance a young woman’s dress is typically more colorful and bright. I learned a really fun fact about this dress. If you look carefully, you might be able to spot a familiar design that looks like a droplet-shape. These are called “butas,” or in Persian, “Boteh” which means “shrub that looks like a thistle”. The buta design was so popular with the British that they took the design and reproduced it into their own textiles and it is now known as the “paisley” design. Cool right? (Another fun fact: During the 2010 Winter Olympics, Azerbaijan’s team sported colorful buta/paisley trousers. Totally gonna look that up!) Wow this was so fun to learn about. It’s really amazing to see how different nations can adopt a piece of culture and really make it their own. I will now always look at beautiful paisley designs and think of Azerbaijan!
“So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say "Me too" again.” – #Oprah I was overcome with such emotion over the words Oprah gave last night and all the guests wearing black in solidarity at the #GoldenGlobes. I am truly grateful to the many survivors and allies, including close friends of mine, who have spoken out and forced the conversation about sexual harassment, sexual assault and gender bias into the spotlight. You have been so brave to go through what you did and even more to share it knowing it will be so painful for you. You have already made this world a better place for our mothers, sisters and daughters and I cannot thank you enough. #whywewearblack #timesup
