A film project "The War is Now" which Im curating, was shown at the Canadian IFAK Fundraiser for Ukraine in Winnipeg
A film project "The War is Now" which Im curating, was shown at the Canadian IFAK Fundraiser for Ukraine in Winnipeg, on Sunday Dec 21st. As a curator of this international project Im very proud and happy that the film Battalion 24 and the amazing story behind it helped raise a lot of much needed money and help for Ukrainian troops fighting in ATO (war frontline) protecting its country from a violent Russian aggression and invasion. These people are true heroes and to showcase their story is a great honor for me and for the whole team.

Berlin Alternative Fashion Week Show Room Project
Art and Fashion Social Project - "Beauty in the Time of War", Haute Presents Gallery, part of Berlin Alternative Fashion Week Show Room Project
The project is aimed to showcase the elements of beauty in the time of war. How do fashion designers create their dresses under bullets? How does war influence their art? We brought together female designers - one group from Georgia and one group from Ukraine. These countries went through and are still going through a similar war, with the same enemy - Russia, if to be more exact - Putin and his politics of aggression. These designers, artists fight the same battle but they fight as the invisible soldiers of beauty, preserving perhaps the very essence of their homeland, its traditions, culture, motifs, esthetics and soul. Thus even when the lives are lost, when borders are violently demolished and lands are illegally taken - this beauty which they create remains. Because, as long as, the soul of the nation is preserved in its art - its spirit is truly immortal.

These women fight against bullets and bombs with finest silk and embroidery, they stand against the tanks with blotches of beautiful color. How does the woman artist, fashion designer sees the War?!

Opening - 6 November, Haute Presents Gallery, part of Berlin Alternative Fashion Week Show Room Project, Berlin, Germany.
