This Friday, the first fashion show will take place within the “Support Ukrainian Fashion” Initiative. Ukrainian designer NADYA DZYAK will present her collection at Malta Fashion Week.
Malta Fashion Week 2022 Edition will be held on July 20-22 in Valletta at the Grand Harbour Terrace, on the rooftop of the Mediterranean Conference Centre. Although the road to this event has been challenging after two years of limited opportunities for the local entertainment industry, the team behind Malta Fashion Week 2022, all the designers participating, makeup artists, hair stylists, photographers, fashion stylists and the entire backstage crew are as committed as ever to making this event the show-stopping success it has always been.
This season, Malta Fashion Week supported the appeal of Ukrainian Fashion Week and invited the Ukrainian designer NADYA DZYAK to form part of their lineup. Since due to the severe war in Ukraine, the 51st season of UFW will be held in an unusual format – on the international catwalks.
At Malta Fashion Week NADYA DZYAK will present the Seasonless Collection 2022. Each collection of the Ukrainian brand has its own unique features, the brand’s commitment to pleated details, translucent fabrics and multi-layered decor is recognizable throughout the world. The brand is appreciated by world-famous celebrities and influencers: Kylie Minogue, Maye Musk, Jamie Chung, Xenia Adonts, Kelly Rowland and is widely featured in the world’s most popular fashion magazines: Vogue, L’Officiel, WWD, Harper’s Bazaar and many others.
“Perhaps, it is the most difficult and most important collection in my life.
I started working on it back in November last year. We were sewing this collection, and then February 24th came… and that was it. On the last day, when I was in our studio, I saw my team – we were like one family, for many years we created incredible things together.
However, I promised myself that no matter what, we must create, finish the collection and overcome the darkness,” comments Nadya Dzyak.
The collection turned out to be “international” also because part of it was sewn in Ukraine, and some pieces were created by designer Nadya Dzyak in Vienna. Seasonless Collection 2022 will be presented at Malta Fashion Week on July 22.
“Ukrainian Fashion Week is sincerely grateful to Adrian J. Mizzi and the Malta Fashion Week team for supporting Ukrainian designer NADYA DZYAK in this extremely difficult and tragic time. It is extremely important for us that Ukrainian fashion brands get the opportunity to show their new collections, which are created in very difficult conditions. We strive for Ukrainian brands, having demonstrated their collections, to be preserved, to preserve teams, to preserve companies. We are now fighting on the cultural front. It is extremely important for Ukraine, for the support of our country by the world. Thank you, colleagues – Malta Fashion Week team, for your belief in the “Support Ukrainian Fashion” Initiative. For your faith in Ukraine”, – Iryna Danylevska, founder and CEO of Ukrainian Fashion Week
Malta Fashion Week 2022 is organised by Adrian J Mizzi, supported by a Partnership Agreement for Large-Scale Events and Initiatives with the Valletta Cultural Agency within the Ministry for National Heritage, the Arts and Local Government. It is also supported by the Malta Tourism Authority that believes that Malta Fashion Week can be an important gateway to position Malta as a destination for arts and culture.
