ECO-CHIC-PARTY 5 within Ukrainian Fashion Week
On October 13, within Ukrainian Fashion Week official schedule there will be held ECO-CHIC-PARTY 5 – an event initiated by the owner of a vintage clothes boutique Goodbuyfashion Natalia Isupova under the aegis of the Embassy of Sweden in Ukraine.
Ukrainian Fashion Week always supports social projects apart of fashion ones. Not for the first time already Ukrainian Fashion Week takes active part in the projects dedicated to acute ecological problems. Taking this into account it sounds logical that the 5th edition of ECO-CHIC-PARTY will be held within Ukrainian Fashion Week.
ECO-CHIC-PARTY 5 will be rather unusual, as the party will be held since midday till 3pm. It was decided to hold the project in a beautiful Fomin Botanical Garden – a green oasis in the heart of Kyiv. This location ideally corresponds to the mission of the project – development of a pro-ecological attitude among the dwellers of the contemporary megapolis through … fashion industry.
ECO-CHIC-PARTY initiative has been functioning for 4 years already and has already managed to become a visiting card of Kyiv. This year the event is a part of Ukrainian Fashion Week official schedule and is supported by the Embassy of Sweden in Ukraine, as it was an ethnic fashion exposition organized in 2009 by Sweden Institute that set into motion ECO-CHIC movement in Ukraine.
As usual, each visitor has to bring some piece of clothes which he doesn’t wear any more and to give it second life. An eco-fashion project will present a fashion show by Ukrainian designers who have created mini-collections specially for the project. Among the designers-participants of the project there are Sasha Kanevskiy, Masha Reva, Fedir Vozianov and Yasia Khomenko.
For the first time ECO-CHIC-PARTY will organize a platform for kids. Ksenia Marchenko will present a fashion show of her collection “Red Book of Ukraine” created in organic cotton for the youngest lovers of fashion and nature. The kids will be treated by Dasha Malakhova with delicious snacks from organic products provided by ECO-CHIC boutique. The theme of the event will be also supported by an exposition of ecological furniture decorated by Ukrainian artists. Within ECO-CHIC-PARTY 5 there will be created an eco-chic alley: the general sponsor of the event “Pryrodne dzherelo” TM will kindly provide thuja planting stocks which will be planted by celebrities-guests of the party.
