Lviv Fashion Week, October 23-25, Lviv Art Palace (17, Kopernyka Street)

Since its launch in 2008 Lviv Fashion Week has succeeded in establishing its brand both within Ukrainian fashion circles and as an exciting fringe event on the wider Eastern European scene. This fourth series of catwalk shows will feature a host of international designers joining their Ukrainian colleagues in the sumptuous surroundings of Lviv’s Art Palace. Day one of the shows will be Polish day, with designers from Poland including Alicia Czamiecka and Cipher & Matylda with the collaboration of Poland’s Zlota Nikta international competition for young designers. As part of this month’s Spring Summer 2010 shows, Lviv Fashion Week’s Grand Prix winner will get to showcase their designs at the coming Polish Fashion Week in Warsaw. The highlight of the three days of catwalk shows will in all likelihood prove the October 24 demonstration of Roksolana Bogutska’s latest collection. Lviv legend Bogutska is the designer behind Ruslana’s Eurovision-winning Wild Dances leather costume of 2004 fame and has also provided ethnically-influenced items for a host of Ukrainian celebrities including the country’s First Lady Ekateryna Yushchenko.
