There are two types of fashion: fashion of names and fashion of times.

It is believed that fashion of names describes core global milestones in the cultural development. The fashion of times, on the contrary, tells specific local and subcultural stories, describes tastes, feelings and desires of certain people that live in certain time and place. The interest to these stories has been growing.

«Avant-garde fashion emerges in times when old social organisation withers away, while a new one rapidly arises. Its function is to push the envelope, to go beyond the limits of acceptable and possible, to revise and dismantle existing traditions and to demonstrate new horizons of a new reality. One could hardly find a better place for bringing avant-garde values of freedom into fashion than Odessa — the city with its own bright style, extraordinary aesthetics and insolent character, the city, where clothing was traditionally the most import form of self-presentation», — curator, fashion historian Zoya Zvinyatkivska explains.

Curators — Zoya Zvinyatkivska, Tatyana-Margarita Sui. Original dresses and other fashion objects, photo and video made in 90s are included to the exhibition. The exhibition will last until October 13 2019.
