Documenting Ukraine Grants

Documenting Ukrainian Fashion during the Cold War

The project traces the foundations of post-war Ukrainian identity and culture through the lens of fashion. As a part of the project, I will collect and digitize documents on the history of Ukrainian fashion during the Cold War. I will also create a platform (website) for the Digital Archive of Ukrainian Fashion History, which will host this digital information. The research is based on over a decade of personal experience in studying the topic and defending a thesis on the subject. The implementation of this project is an opportunity to preserve Ukrainian historical and cultural heritage for both Ukrainian and Western scholars, many of whom may not have an opportunity to visit a safe and peaceful Ukraine for years to come.
