Nowadays famous designers, buyers, influencers, bloggers and concept owners are attending Ukrainian Fashion Week. First shows in UFW took place on Saturday, February 3rd and it finishes on February 8th. More than 50 Ukrainian designers took part in this fashion week and introduced the fall and winter collections ‘18-’19.

Mystetskyi Arsenal is a stunning building where lots of exhibitions were beautifully desplayed and shows were hold. Good location, large space and highly modern place for Kiev fashion days. Another shows took place in different locations creating completely unforgettable atmosphere and leaving the marks in your head for the next few days or even weeks.

In this article 3 Ukrainian designers to follow will be presented that took part in Ukrainian Fashion Week. Let’s take the inspiration and watch the captured moments of the local designers!

The designer’s signature is kind of ‘pants on shorts’ looking denim pieces. To sell in the Ukrainian concept stores is possible but to get into the international market – that is a struggle. Seems like Ksenia is doing a great job – her pieces are being sold Moda Operandi and Stylebop.



Is the combination of feminine and masculine structures possible? You can easily find it on the pieces of Lake Studio brand! The feeling of sharpness together mixed with womanly vibes in all the collection – that is what you get by enetering Lake Studio’s show.


From the sparkling bodysuits to the winter full-length coats – everything is included in one collection. What makes the collection look even more cool and extravagant is the models’ faces hiden under the black masks. These breathtaking catwalks surely makes you memorize Gudu brand. Seems like Ukrainian Fashion Week is getting the international recognition by inviting the international guests, catching the attention of buyers and collaborating with the designers from other countries. A fashion word this week is being spread wisely – from the national Ukrainian details on the clothes to the edgy and brave looks with the inspiration from vintage. UFW surely brought us a lot of blissful feelings showing the potential of local designers.
