It can be written a lot about difficult times and the new reality. Though we can proudly say that the Ukrainian fashion industry has survived the crisis, proved its resilience and continues to scale new heights.
The Best Fashion Awards is the only professional award in the fashion area in Ukraine, established in 2010. Since then, the BFA has become the main tool for objectively determining the leaders of the Ukrainian fashion industry.
The BFA Award is ready to develop and grow, support young designers in Ukraine and create new opportunities for the winners and nominees of the Award.
