Fashion Scout's AW14 Ukrainian designers have been featured on iD online. In an article named 'A Fashion Revolution: How Ukraine's Designers Took On Paris', the piece describes not just the unique work from our Ukrainian designers but the industry's unfaltering support for the situation on their side of the world. 

The article describes the work of PASKAL and Anna October, both runners-up of the LVHM prize, as follows:

'Inspired by the architectural Suprematist movement of the 20s, Julie’s autumn/winter 14 collection for her label PASKAL turns skyscrapers into perforated, milk-white garments, creating a kind of futuristic Modernism that doesn’t look like anything else, while Anna October has carved out her own slightly gloomy and very intricate niche of what Mower calls “non-flashy, elegant party dresses”.'

It goes on to continue praising the designer's aesthetics, as well as their thoughts whilst showcasing in the Fashion Scout Paris showrooms. “We are very passionate about what we do, and there’s something in our mentality that makes us strong and forward-looking,” Julie says in the article. “When your country is on the brink of war, it is the worst and the best pressure simultaneously."
