Fabric of Freedom Fashion Show

In a collaborative effort to support Ukrainian refugee fashion designers in London, the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) is joining forces with the London Metropolitan University, UA in UK Community, Creative Headshots, and curators Olenka Martynyuk and Nataliia Bartkiv to organise an inaugural fashion show featuring designers Galushko, Mandyradzhy, Selera, AG Studio, and Tetyana Palchinska.

The primary aim of this initiative is to provide a platform for these talented designers to showcase their creations, connect with potential buyers and investors, and cultivate a supportive community conducive to their business growth.

This event not only showcases the remarkable creative expertise of Ukrainian designers but also highlights the profound impact of the ongoing Ukrainian conflict. It adds an international and humanitarian dimension that LCCI has been actively advocating for months, emphasising the critical need for solidarity and support.

Join us on Tuesday 30 April, 6:00 pm, at the Great Hall on Holloway Road for an evening of inspiration and solidarity. Sign up via the Eventbrite page to secure your spot.
