“Ukrainian Fashion Week is going through the most difficult season in its 25 years of existence. We did everything so that Ukrainian designers would not lose it. Ten Fashion Weeks welcomed Ukrainian designers only within the “Support Ukrainian Fashion” Initiative by Ukrainian Fashion Week. There were also shows of our designers in New York, Milan, Paris… In this tragic time for Ukraine and the whole world, fashion demonstrates not only diversity, inclusiveness, sustainability and freedom. Fashion demonstrates solidarity and commitment to humanistic and democratic values. Thank you to all colleagues for supporting Ukraine!” – Iryna Danylevska, founder and CEO of Ukrainian Fashion Week.
The 51st season of Ukrainian Fashion Week became international. Fashion shows and presentations of Ukrainian designers have already taken place at Malta Fashion Week, Copenhagen Fashion Week, Budapest Central European Fashion Week, Berlin Fashion Week, Transilvania Fashion Festival, Vienna Fashion Week, MBFW Madrid.
