The 36th Ukrainian Fashion Week, which started on March 18, features some 62 Ukrainian designers who are presenting their autumn-winter 2015/2016 Collections, the Kyiivpost.com reported.
Ukrainian Fashion Week will be held for eight days instead of the usual five.
The head of the organizing committee of the Fashion Week, Iryna Danylevska, says that this year Ukrainian designers depict war in their fashion collections, going with the slogan “Next Step”.
“We have a feeling that we are doing the next step in the life of our country, in the lives of each of us”, Danylevska says. “In such a way Ukrainian designers make us think about the future and make us believe in our country”.
Besides a fashion mission, the current Fashion Week has a strong social background.
Near the entrance to the venue, visitors are welcomed with the art project “Ukraine Inspired” – a big map of Ukraine decorated with the most important quotes of famous Ukrainian writers and works of Ukrainian fashion illustrators.
Vytoky (Origins), an art project dedicated to the traditions of Ukrainian national costume, is another interesting fashion event. This year’s Ukrainian Fashion Week displays Ukrainian embroidered costumes from private collections and from Ivan Honchar Museum.
The first day of Ukrainian Fashion Week was opened with a show by Ukrainian designer Liliya Pustovit.
Other designers who demonstrated their collections include Viktoriya Hres, Annette Gorts, Olena Burenina, Viktor Anisimov, Olena Serebrova and Yuliya Aysina.
This year fashion lovers can enjoy 45 fashion shows, 14 special projects and seven special Open Fashion events.
