On March 16th the most influential industry players gathered in London at Somerset House to see showcases of Ukrainian brands.
This event was championed by the founder of the British store Avenue32 – Roberta Benteler, who is one of the supporters of three Ukrainien designers, Anna K, Litkovskaya and Paskal.
I was invited by Roberta to be the co-host of the event, and here is what I have to say about the whole idea: “This event, dedicated to three Ukrainian designers – Anna K, Litkovskaya and Paskal, organized by Robert Benteler of Avenue32 and me is extremely important for the entire fashion industry of Ukraine. Five years ago, when I started to support Ukrainian fashion industry with Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Days, I couldn’t even imagine that in a short amount of time Ukrainian designers will be sold in best International stores. Avenue32 is a mirror of everything cool happening in fashion right now, and Roberta’s choice to select Ukrainian designers for her store means that they already achieved a high level of creativity and quality. I am proud to introduce three great designers to the community of Avenue32 friends and British press – I am sure, they will love new collections by Anna K, Litkovskaya and Paskal!”
