Ukrainian Fashion Week/Best Fashion Awards
Each year, as a part of Ukrainian Fashion Week, the British Council awards its Best Newcomer of the Year prize to the Ukraine’s most promising emerging fashion designer. The winner is determined by a jury of industry professionals – fashion journalists, critics and buyers. The winner receives a trip to London Fashion Week the following winter, and as part of the British Council’s international fashion delegation, attends a bespoke business mentoring programme and study tour facilitated by the London College of Fashion. This unique opportunity for young designers and entrepreneurs to experience and study the global fashion market, develop international contacts and take their brand global is unrivaled in Ukraine.
The prize is awarded annually each autumn by the British Council as part of Ukrainian Fashion Week’s Best Fashion Awards, which celebrate the achievements of the Ukrainian fashion sector. Past Best Newcomer awards have gone to:
