Ukrainian Fashion Week celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2017. Twenty years ago a group of young, talented and socially active Ukrainian designers gathered together to start the new page of the Ukrainian fashion industry.
Ukrainian fashion is not just about trendy clothes, it’s about hard work of many talented professionals who aimed to make Ukraine noticed by the international fashion industry. Ukrainian fashion brands have recently fully arrived on the leading catwalks of the fashion capitals worldwide and this became possible because of vast professional fashion community of Ukrainian designers, stylists, journalists and bloggers, musicians, directors, illustrators, hair and make-up artists, photographers, models, painters, interior designers, retailers, IT-specialists and many other people who work in the field of fashion in this country. All these people are bright representatives of the new-wave Ukrainian fashion.
