Event Description

Designer Jean Paul Gaultier’s spectacular Spring 2006 Ready-to-Wear Collection was inspired by traditional Ukrainian costumes. Designers such as Vita Kin have made the Ukrainian “vyshyvanka” (embroidered garment) commonplace in today’s fashion market. Visit the source for their inspiration; see the exhibition “Timeless Treasures,” which features 20 complete Ukrainian folk costumes, ritual cloths, elaborate headdresses, accessories, and other mid-19th to mid-20th century costumes and textiles.
