More Dash Showroom enjoyed great success and attracted attention of such fashion influencers as Anna Wintour, Jessica Michault, Lily Templton, Elina Halimi, Sarah Andelman and Karine Dobrotvorskaya.
More Dash’s debut edition was small but friendly. Such great people as Sarah Mower, Julie Gilhart, Nicola Formichetti and Suzy Menkes lent their attention to 10 labels from Ukraine.
Ukrainian designers collections were appreciated by the most influential fashion insiders and represented Ukraine as strong, independent, purposeful young country with a great future. All guests were keenly interested in last year events in Ukraine and expressed their support and wishes for a speedy recovery. It should be added, that many collections were inspired by ukrainian cultural and hard times of Ukraine nation.
