Responsible production. Ukrainian designers picked up world trends. This is clearly visible at Ukrainian fashion week that started in Kyiv. Our reporters went to see what will be in fashion coming seasons.
Ukrainian Fashion Week is not just about beauty. Our designers are increasingly moving to sustainable production because fashion has a direct impact on climate change. Textile production uses vast natural resources and only 15% of all clothing is recyclable.
“Every day, there are more such people. More and more people are paying attention to this. More and more people are opting for natural design and household items. So this is a unique growing cool trend that is developing in Ukraine too."
At the fashion challenge, designers actively promoted the idea of eco-consciousness. For example, guests could wear VR glasses and watch a 360-degree movie about hemp production in Ukraine.

Our reporters also took part in the fashion show of Ukrainian designers.
