Ukrainian Museum to host contemporary wearable art show

"Fashion, Ukrainian Style," a runway show of contemporary wearable art, will be held on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 2.30 p.m. at The Ukrainian Museum in New York City.

Fashion designers Oksana Karavanska and Katya Pshechenko, both from Ukraine, and Elena Vasilevsky, a Ukrainian-born designer of fashion and jewelry now working in New York, will present their respective lines at this special event organized as a benefit for the Museum.

This event is presented in conjunction with the Museum’s current exhibition Out of Tradition: Contemporary Decorative and Applied Art. The exhibition features the work of 35 contemporary decorative artists of Ukrainian background from Ukraine, the United States, and Canada.

The exhibition showcases works from the innovative realm of contemporary art and design that are rooted in the tradition and aesthetic of Ukrainian folk art. Ceramics, jewelry, textiles, high-fashion clothing and accessories, and decorative items crafted from wood, glass, and silver are among the more than 150 objects on display. The distinguishing feature of the exhibition is the Ukrainian heritage of each of the artists, whose symbiotic link with the rich history of Ukrainian decorative art is a major leitmotif of the exhibition.

"Fashion, Ukrainian Style" will also include presentations of jewelry and accessories designed by other artists featured in the exhibition. The show is a celebration of Out of Tradition as the exhibition approaches its closing date, October 6, 2013.

A silent auction of items donated by Out of Tradition artists and a Viennese café reception will follow the runway show and presentations. Attendees will be able to meet the designers and models while enjoying tortes and sweets, wine and coffee.
