Ukrainian Fashion Week was held from 3th to the 6th of February.

Founded in 1997, Ukrainian Fashion Week became a unifying force for the industry in Ukraine and the first fashion week not only among the post-Soviet countries but throughout the whole of Central Europe.  This was the 50th anniversary season of Ukrainian Fashion Week FW22-23 and it took place in Kyiv.  To mark this milestone, designers that took part in the first fashion week season in November of 1997 were again part of the official schedule – Serhiy Byzov, Viktor Anisimov, Olena Vorozhbyt and Tetyana Zemskova, – presented their FW22-23 collections on the main catwalk of the country.

During this season especially, Ukrainian fashion week, shows its incredible resilience in showcasing and pushing forward emerging, as well as already established, Ukrainian designers. The launch pad UFW offers for young creatives is as important as ever during this season.

This season Ukrainian Fashion Week has hosted 16 art installations, 84 young designers that have shown their collections at Fashion and New Names platforms, graduate collections of private fashion schools, and Epson Digital Fashion lab project.

“One of the most important areas of our work has always been the search and support of talented young designers.  Among the other priorities of UFW are also sustainability, digitalization, diversity, and inclusivity – building blocks of the entire world fashion industry”  

– said Iryna Danylevska, CEO of Ukrainian Fashion Week.

Designers that stood out to us during this season are; Dzhus, Yadviga Netyksha and of course the students.
