Who said 'Fashion Month' is over?
I spent the weekend in Ukraine to attend Kiev Fashion Days.
Not so many of you have heard of it. It is why it is exciting to share this.
Kiev is a hidden gem. Magnificent architecture, soft post-soviet atmosphere, very welcoming people and since recently an appetite for creative fashion.
Highlights of my first two days: the nostalgic charm of Hotel Ukrayna where I was staying, the snow in Spring, Pinchuk Art Center, late night Russian lessons, the minimalistic collection of local designer Sasha Kanevski and alive myth Pete Doherty getting wild at Crystal Hall.
