“You Should Be Taking Notes : Kiev Fashion Week Spring 2016”
We know and love New York Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, and London Fashion week. They’re known for being huge, extravagant, and the times when the big designers come out to play and show of their masterpiece. As much as we should absolutely focus on these events, we sometimes need to be reminded that there are smaller, still extremely relevant fashion weeks out there in other countries. In this mini-series, I’ll be introducing you to some designers to watch from Russia Fashion Week, Sao Paolo Fashion Week, and Kiev Fashion Week. Enjoy!
