Eyes on Ukraine

As conflict in Ukraine peaked last year, fashion was weaponised and designers bravely translated their political motivations to the catwalk. When the rest of the world’s fashion press avoided the war-zone, NJAL took to fashion’s front line in Kiev, to stand in solidarity with its home-grown talent. One year on, NJAL is back to assess Ukraine’s turbulent terrain and turn the camera on its community of emerging fashion talent in an exclusive short film titled #EyesOnUkraine. Watch here now
