The Ukrainian Fashion Week team announces the second UFW International Season FW23-24 and the partnership with London Fashion Week.
The war in Ukraine continues. The next season will be another tragic and challenging one for Ukrainian designers and the entire Ukrainian fashion industry. As part of the UFW International Season FW23-24, Ukrainian designers will present their collections in London, Berlin and Copenhagen.
London Fashion Week and Ukrainian Fashion Week will present three Ukrainian fashion brands: FROLOV, KSENIASCHNAIDER and PASKAL as part of the “Support Ukrainian Fashion” Initiative. The initiative was launched by Ukrainian Fashion Week to support talent in Ukraine.
“The Ukrainian Fashion Week team expresses deep gratitude to our colleagues from London Fashion Week. This season, we will continue to present talented and brave designers of Ukraine on world catwalks thanks to international support.
In the darkest times, each of us believes in a bright future. Ukrainian designers continue to create new collections despite missile strikes and blackouts. These collections will stay in the history of the Ukrainian fashion industry, as an evidence of its courage, resilience and resistance, the qualities that all of Ukraine demonstrates to the world now,” – Iryna Danylevska, founder and CEO of Ukrainian Fashion Week.
Last season, in order to support the designers, Ukrainian Fashion Week launched the “Support Ukrainian Fashion” Initiative. Within the Initiative, 43 Ukrainian designers presented their collections in Europe and the USA at Berlin Fashion Week, Copenhagen Fashion Week, Vegan Fashion Week (Los Angeles), Budapest Central European Fashion Week, Brussels Fashion Week, MBFW Madrid, Vienna Fashion Week, Malta Fashion Week and Transilvania Fashion Festival. This season, within the Ukrainian Fashion Week x London Fashion Week partnership, Great Britain has joined the Initiative.
