Ukrainian Fashion Week




If you ask me or any member of our team what inspires and gives us strength, the answer will be –  our Victory. Now all thoughts are only about it. It gives us the power not to give up. Everyone does everything possible in their places to help in our fight.

This collection was created by brave girls in Ukraine in Dnipro city under the sounds of air raid sirens and sometimes rockets. The collection is almost all black because this is our state now.

Among the black things, single bright drops of colours appear – purple, cobalt and red. These are the colours of our Hope. For me, it’s about the fight of good over evil, light over darkness.

We shot the new lookbook in Warsaw, but it was extremely important to me that the team was Ukrainian. That’s how we got together – indomitable Ukrainian girls who, by the will of fate, have met NOT at home.

The new collection embodies NADYA DZYAK DNA: pleated, geometrically laid out, transparent frills and voluminous flowers. There are always many different textures in our collections. I prefer the combination of transparent organza with dense textures. It reminds me of a play of contradictions – light and dark. I love the deformation of fabrics – pleats and patterns made of them as if I were drawing with them. In the new collection, we made voluminous, hand-quilted, warm bomber jackets decorated with 3D flowers.

We also worked for the first time with a new material for us – denim. We have developed CUT OUT jeans together with stylists Sofia Horobets and Anastasia Oliynyk and complemented them with a denim corset top with a voluminous flower.

The collection features a lot of knitwear. The asymmetrical bodysuits with pleated details are combined with unexpectedly asymmetrically CUT OUT pants. Another unexpected combination is crop bustier tops with signature transparent frills and weightless as if they were created from air gloves.

Of course, the collection also includes reinterpreted classic transparent bestsellers in black, red and beige colours.

The new collection will be presented on 1-6th of March in Paris at the VETEMAZE showroom, organized by the Ukrainian team.

“I am writing this press release and listening to the speech of our President Volodymyr Zelensky in the British Parliament, having the feeling that I have growing wings – wings of faith in our Victory. We will work, live, create new collections, sew beautiful dresses, each in their place does everything for our Victory and always remembers his most important words:
Life Will Win Over Death. Light Will Win Over Darkness,” Nadya Dzyak, Founder and Creative Director of the brand.
