On the last day of London Fashion Week, the British Fashion Council hosted a special catwalk showcase with Ukrainian Fashion Week, giving designers Kseniaschnaider, Paskal, and Frolov the opportunity to showcase their autumn/winter 2023 collections.

The three Ukrainian guest designers held a joint show in London, as what would have been the 50th edition of Ukrainian Fashion Week has been cancelled due to the ongoing Russian invasion.

As the show was about the start, an audio message told attendees the collections were designed and produced under air raid sirens and that the collections were “symbolic of the resilience and courage of Ukraine and its people”.

After each designer showcased their AW23 collections, Ksenia Schnaider, Julie Paskal and Ivan Frolov came together to walk the catwalk bearing the Ukrainian Flag with the United24 logo, the official fundraising platform launched by Ukrainian president Zelensky to support Ukraine.
