Dialogue Between East and West Salone Degli Affreschi at Società Umanitaria February 28th 7.00 pm
What Fashion Vibes brought to stage at the Società Umanitaria was a painful poem, the necessary awareness of a humanitarian crisis which is close enough to allow us to hear the echo of the war in progress.
The show also saw Ukrainian designers among the various brands on the catwalk. The difficult times we are living in and the tragedy that men and women, the elderly and children of Ukraine are experiencing, are rendered with clarity and respect during the show.
Dialogue Between East and West Salone Degli Affreschi
Only eight children models managed to arrive in Italy from Kiev. In Milan, the event inevitably turns out to be a representation of awareness of a war that breaks the order of an everyday life regained with so much effort after the last two years of the pandemic, and a clear stance against the war.
The world of fashion is, in general, a vehicle for messages conveyed by designers, who are artists and creatives. Today’s message can only be one of peace.
As part of the Milan Fashion Week, Yuliia Palchykova’s Fashion Vibes presents the By Vel children’s collection and the collections by Saleh Zini, Wanda Lephoto and Minina in this very spirit of peace, during a magnificent event held in the splendid Salone degli Affreschi of the Società Umanitaria.
The common thread were the themes of inclusiveness, diversity and sustainability, promoting a real green commitment.
Eight children arrived from Ukraine to open the fashion show for the kids’ collection by By Vel, presented both in a virtual runway show on the Fashion Vibes platform – on February 22nd at 6.00 pm – and in attendance – on February 28th – followed by 3 designers who presented their own enchanting creations: the “Fingerprints” evening couture collection, by the talented designer Saleh Zini, shows a glamorous and fearless woman; the bridal collection made in lightweight, ethereal Belarusian linen by Minina Linen Luxury brings to stage a romantic woman; the show is closed by the intense colors of Wanda Lephoto, which tell the story of the English colonization in Africa.
