This year Ukrainian traditional costumes show at National Gallery of Australia in Canberra was even more grand. Initiated by Ukrainian embassy in Canberra this project united efforts of most of Sydney and Canberra Ukrainian organisations. Foremost Ukrainian Woman Association.
I am very grateful to all who participated. It was a privilege to work with ancient clothes from private collections. After careful research I combined them into complete outfits from different regions of Ukraine. I certainly enjoyed making headgear and jewellery replicas the most. Slides, text, scenario, logistics… the project was massive.
“Vilna Dumka” Ukrainian Newspaper in Australia has more information on the event.
