Kharkiv has turned into the center of fashion, design and business this weekend. Everyone who is interested or works in the fashion industry gathered at Fashion Business Days, which take place at Kharkiv National Academic Opera and Ballet Theater.
The first day of the festival started with the design market and the fashion show. The festival-goers could evaluate 17 clothes collections by Young designers from Kharkiv, Kyiv, Odesa and Kryvyi Rih.
Organizers noted that this time the special attention was paid to the catwalk. Its length corresponded to the world standards and was 21 meters instead of 10, as it was before.
Fashion shows and a business forum are on today’s schedule. Designers, entrepreneurs, city authorities, science, and light industry representatives visited the forum. Models will be walking on a runway until 9 p.m.
Also, the Fashion Days organizers presented the Kharkiv Cluster of Light Industry and Design. “We understand that for the successful operation of enterprises in this field it is necessary to merge business, government and science representatives. Due to their cooperation, the cluster would be able to forget about the competition and concentrate on development within our region, Ukraine and will enter foreign markets,” the representatives of Kharkiv authorities admitted.
As part of the fashion days, Turkish manufacturers from Bursa and Gaziantep presented their products.
