The fusion of Ukrainian culture, traditional apparel, and my personal Gagauz heritage ( turkic minority in Ukraine). My final work honors love within weddings and the resilience of Ukrainian couples amidst ongoing war. With multi-layered silhouettes, inspired by details of the Ukrainian traditional wedding bread ,, Korovai”, by the wheat as one of the symbols of Ukraine, and other traditions. This collection serves as a reminder that love knows no bounds, underscoring the importance of recognizing and celebrating it in all its forms.
