In Progress. Dress Code in Ukraine since Independence
Art Arsenal (vul. Lavrska 10-12, Kyiv)
This original show launched at the beginning of summer in Kyiv and is dedicated to the recent history of Ukrainian fashion. The exhibit includes around 200 models from 40 Ukrainian designers, large art objects 4 meters tall, and models from shows in such fashion capitals as Milan, Paris, New York, Florence, and Dallas. For the organizers, the point was not just to show fashionable trends but to explore society through the prism of fashion. The story starts with clothing from the 1990s and ends up with what is happening today.
