It has been a while since I praised Ukrainian fashion. This is the time of the year again – just a couple of days ago Kiev was hosting bi-annual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days Kiev. Although the SS16 edition is much smaller in scale and is more like an industry event not the magnifique spectacle it is still very interesting to see how the event has become a hub to some particular names in fashion hosted by the fashion agency More Dash.
Designers like Anna K, Omelya, Anton Belinsky, Ksenia Schnaider and Valery Kovalska are the main catwalk names presented by More Dash, agency headed by the Ukrainian fashion icon Daria Shapovalova. These are the default catwalk shows at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days Kiev. However, this time we wanted to make a detour from them and have a look at the real-life catwalk: the streets of Kiev.
By welcoming Ukrainian street style blogger Alyona Shum on Fashion Bloc family as a guest blogger, we’re happy to share with you our top picks from Kyiv Street Style at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Days Kiev.
As visual evidence proves – street fashion in Kiev is just as inspirational as designer fashion. To double check the facts – please check the video for Anton Belinsky SS16 catwalk show.
