I decided to create this video manifesto, as I can’t tolerate the situation in the Eastern part of Ukraine. During my work as the creative director of Mercedes-Benz Kiev Fashion Week, I’ve been promoting designers from Ukraine, and my aim was to show everyone that my country deserves its place on the world’s fashion map. After seven years of hard work, we have Ukrainian designers selling in great stores worldwide, and the fashion community knows that Ukraine has amazing talents. I want my generation of Ukrainians to rule our country, to make it strong and beautiful. And I strongly believe in the power of fashion, which can be a weapon of hope. Fashion for Peace!
