I wanted to post this on my blog for a long time… Tashamira was a Croatian dancer and choreographer whose real name was Vera Milcinovic. When I saw her photos from 1930’s at the exhibition ‘Avant Garde Tendencies in Croatian Art’ few years ago, I was completely thrilled.
First, her name sounds even today very hype and cool. But Tashamira’s ‘image’ was crucial, just take a look at her costume and hair cut. She was also one of those faces that were far ahead of their time.
