This is the busy program for March 6-10 promised by the organizers of the main event of Ukraine’s fashion world – Ukrainian Fashion Week.

Fifteen young Ukrainian designers will also present their collections within the framework of the projects Fresh Fashion and New Names.
BESIDE THE PODIUM
The official program of the Ukrainian Fashion Week will also include fashion shows in other locations, like the fashion show of Anastasia Ivanova, which will take place on the ice arena in the SEC Dream Town, and major events beside the shows in Mystetsky Arsenal.
The 32nd Ukrainian Fashion Week will start with a presentation of joint project of the UFW and ELLE Ukraine – “Retrospective of Ukrainian Designers’ Accessories.” The retrospective of unique designer works planned by the organizers will be the first attempt to focus the attention of specialists on presence and prospects of the accessory lines that are created by Ukrainian designers. The names of the designers have been kept in secret by the organizers for now. However, as it was noted by the founder and the chairperson of the UFW organizing committee Iryna DANYLEVSKA, the exhibition will feature art work of both famous “masters” of Ukrainian fashion world and “newcomers.” Danylevska specifically named Lilia Pustovit, Svitlana Bevza, Tetiana Mitus, and Snizhanna Nekh.
On March 8 Ukrainian Fashion Week will present the project “Fashion Move On.” Last year this project was initiated by young designer Yulia Polishchuk. In this season the audience will see fashion videos, shot at different time over the past year: INTERACTION by LITKOVSKAYA&ELLE Ukraine, POUSTOVIT brand video SS 2013, kameskakononova collections teasers, OMELYA atelier teaser, sasha.kanevski mood video, ARTEMKLIMCHUK BattleRoyale. As a part of the project there will be held a presentation of a film about the world’s top model Iryna Kravchenko (Ukraine) directed by Yulia Romanovska and exclusive video from the magazine Viva! about designer’s work on creating a collection.
The Day will traditionally cover the events of the Ukrainian Fashion Week. You will find blitz interviews with the most interesting participants and guests of the 32nd UFW, photo reports from the brightest (in terms of designer skill) fashion shows, and many other interesting and useful things here.
