The national contest among young clothing designers “Look into the Future” is an all-Ukrainian action founded in 2000.
The contest aimed at support and development of young talents who are so numerous in the world of Ukrainian Fashion. The contest is organized under the aegis of Ukrainian Fashion Council to ensure a comprehensive support of their creativity and the development of their professional level.
Among the contestants, there are the most gifted young designers from all over Ukraine. Traditionally, more than 100 young designers send their sketches for the first stage of the contest.
The creative search of the contestants is assessed by a competent jury-team: Ukrainian Fashion Council members and authoritative Ukrainian designers. The Expert Committee is headed by the Chair of Ukrainian Fashion Council Liliya Poustovit.
Participation in the contest allows young designers to present their creative potential to professionals and fashion-lovers, to catch the eye of mass media, to find investors and opportunities for cooperation with outstanding designers and trademarks – that is, to create their future.
The Contest became a starting point for many, now very well-known, designers like Elena Burenina, Natalia Kamenska, Olesia Kononova, Artem Klimchuk, Olena Przhonska, Ksenia Schnaider, Oleksandr Kanevski, Andre Tan, Masha Reva, Liudmila Komardina, Volodymyr Podolyan, Dina Lynnyk, Yulia Yefymchuk, Yasya Khomenko, Vanya Frolov.
Winners of the contest get professional prizes, which will help them in the future – financial grants for business development or for creation of the next designer collection.
For more than 20 years already the national contest among young clothing designers “ Look into the Future” has been discovering new names and proving a stable future of Ukrainian Fashion.
