Playfulness abounds in dazzling Dutch designer Femke Agema's fashions

A result of photographer Charles Freger’s months traveling in Europe researching costumes and customs. “More than actual carnivals or folklore, what I was trying to represent was the community of men.

In a very civil way, he reminds us of the animal within.
