Ukrainian Fashion Week is a unique professional fashion event in Ukraine which fully meets the global standards of prêt-a-porter fashion weeks. Ukrainian Fashion Week is held each season featuring collections by the best Ukrainian and foreign designers as well as trade marks.

The debut for Ukraine prêt-a-porter Fashion Week was held in the autumn of 1997 and was the first event of its kind in Eastern Europe. In March 2008 Ukrainian Fashion Week provided its catwalk to designers form Ukraine and abroad for the 22nd time.

Apart from mainstream shows by renowned fashion names Ukrainian Fashion Week also features its subprojects New Names and Fresh Fashion. These projects have been launched to seek out and promote gifted youth.

Over the years they have provided a constant influx of fresh blood into Ukrainian fashion and have reinforced Ukrainian Fashion Week's reputation as a breeding ground for young talent.

Ukrainian Fashion Week is both a show and a community. Our guests include opinion leaders in nearly every area of social life: show business, art, design, business and politics. In recent years Ukrainian Fashion Week has been frequented by the Very cream of political beau-monde of the country.

Ukraine's first lady as well as other prominent persons of Ukraine is among the guests of the Fashion Week. All in all around 35 000 guests visit the Week during its seven days' show program.

Ukrainian Fashion Week has always displayed great concern about social problems facing Ukraine. Fashion Aid project combined the efforts of Ukrainian designers and a Charity fund in a joined campaign aimed at fundraising and promoting tolerance towards HIV-infected people.

Ukrainian designers created outfits especially for the project, and then those outfits were sold during the charity auction. Raised funds are directed to equip the hospitals and financial support by deposit accounts for the sick children.

Ukrainian Fashion Week is extensively covered by Ukrainian periodicals (from daily newspapers to glamour magazines) and the international press. The total number of mass media accredited for Ukrainian Fashion Week amounts to more than 200.

The UFW is usually taking place in huge exhibition centers in Kyiv. Last two seasons and next two are held in Acco International. It is an extraordinary hall in the picturesque Pushkin's Park in the center of the city.
