The event took place on the Harmony Day March 21 at the National Gallery of Australia.
The presentation of historical reconstruction of embroidered styles from different regions of Ukraine took place in the hall of the National Gallery of Australia. The basis of the collection was shirts from the private collection of the head of the Ukrainian Women's Association of New South Wales Christina Bailey. It was she who became an ideological inspiration for the show organization.
The reconstruction of authentic accessories for costumes - necklaces, wreaths and hats - was performed by artist and designer Tetyana Koldunenko.
The expert support of the exposition was provided by the Ukrainian artist Nadiya Pastor, known in Australia.
The guests of the presentation noted not only the incredible beauty of the vyshyvankas, but also a professional demonstration and a skillfully compiled historical reference for each of them.
Ukrainian diplomatic institution in cooperation with the local community has repeatedly presented to the Australian political and diplomatic corps accredited in Canberra Ukrainian cultural traditions and elements of national dress, but the fashion show of Ukrainian vyshynks of such scale was held for the first time.
Due to the success of the event, the embassy intends to hold similar presentations in other states of Australia.
