In Kyiv, on Poshtova Square, an Alley of Postage Stamps was created for the 30th anniversary of Independence of Ukraine. There are 30 stamps of national theme – including the stamp for the 20th anniversary of Ukrainian Fashion Week.
The exclusive stamp was a gift from Ukrposhta for the anniversary of the most significant fashion event in the country.
The UFW art stamp was released in 130,000 copies. Its prototype has become a video work “Transformation” (2012) created by a member of the National Union of Artists of Ukraine Zinaida Likhacheva, first presented at the I Bienniale of Contemporary Art “Arsenale 2012” in Kyiv.
From now, the stamp for the 20th anniversary of Ukrainian Fashion Week will not only remain in the private collections of postage stamp collectors but will also be a part of the Alley of Postage Stamps in Kyiv, connecting two significant events – the 30th anniversary of Independence of Ukraine and the anniversary of UFW, the main fashion event of independent Ukraine.
