The usual sequence of fashion shows and parties scheduled for Oct. 15-19 will take place “against all odds,” according to Oleksandr Sokolovsky, the UFW co-founder.
The organizers complained that due to Ukraine’s harsh political situation the fashion week felt a serious shortage of sponsors to support the event. Also, the Ukrainian designers’ sales are down, Sokolovsky revealed.
Still, 36 fashion shows featuring the spring-summer collections of 2015 will take place in the
Mystetsky Arsenal, the official hosting venue of UFW, this October.
