'Sincere. Legacy' exhibition to show Ukrainian authentic costumes
December, 9 the shopping mall 'Domosfera' will present a photo exhibition 'Sincere. Legacy'. The project took 15 hours of filming, its participants (Ukrainian celebrities) tried on more than 30 Ukrainian authentic costumes and about 30 kg of jewelry.
Ukrainian Institute of History of Fashion worked as the project consultant.
'Over the past two weeks we have traveled more than 3,000 km around Ukraine to look for stories about the costumes, museums and collectors storing the clothes. The situation is dire because regional museums do not receive public funds, and precious costumes are stored in a completely inappropriate conditions, collections are neither systematized nor described, they are lost. That is why the project aims at solving two problems such as presenting color and depth of Ukrainian costumes, and raising funds to support regional museums', Natalia Kravets, the project organizer and the shopping mall managing director, says.
