The Battle of Tailors at the 38th Ukrainian Fashion Week was organized on the initiative of the Ukrainian Charisma Fashion Group boutiques founder and owner Andriy Zdesenko. The main objective of the project is to open new names in men's fashion and tailoring and to establish men’s fashion as a separate independent segment of the Ukrainian fashion market.
