Beauty is imperfect: TSUM held a public talk dedicated to new showcases
On September 18, a public talk was held at the Kiev Central Department Store, dedicated to the new autumn display cases, which are united under the slogan "Beauty in imperfection." They were developed by 8 Ukrainian artists, each of whom combined the world of fashion with his own art.
During the public current, which was attended by Yulia Polyashchenko, Oksana Levchenya, Vova Vorotnev, BRATY, Masha Reva, as well as representatives of the creative department of the Central Department Store, the guests learned about the process of work, the interaction of artists and the creative department of the department store. For example, one of the participants – the art group Pomme de boue – works incognito, therefore, communication with them was carried out exclusively online, and they simply sent their work by taxi. The artist Oksana Levchenya, in turn, provided a hand-made carpet for the window, a drawing of which is inspired by the plan of the city of Kiev.

Each of the participants had something to tell about their sources of inspiration with a different experience, but everyone also agreed that “Beauty in imperfection” is not only an important story about diversity, individuality and self-acceptance, but also a great way to popularize Ukrainian art , because about 200,000 people pass by the Central Department Store every day.
