Between the Gala Dinner and the Days of Ukraine Festival on the South Bank, I attended both the Saatchi Gallery private view of an exhibition featuring contemporary Ukrainian artists, and a fashion show, with the work of several award-winning designers from Ukraine on the runway in the UK for the first time.
After the art preview, we were ushered downstairs for the fashion show, during which the labels Poustovit, KAMENSKAKONONOVA, Litovskaya and Bevza showed a capsule presentation from their SS14 collections on the runway.
Zinaida Lihacheva is a Ukrainian artist who works at the intersection of art and fashion, and appeared here on the runway in a contemporary re-working of Ukrainian traditional dress.
Thank you again to The Firtash Foundation for inviting me to the Saatchi Gallery, and for sponsoring this series of posts on Days of Urkaine in the UK .
