The exhibition Vova Vorotniov and Ksenia Schnaider presented last week at Kiev Fashion Days marked an unusual collaboration between the artist and fashion designer. The series of prints features bright collages comprised of X'U clothes and everyday objects. Vorotniov has a graffiti background; for this series, the artist used clothes from Schnaider's X'U collection instead of paint to create abstract compositions.

Ksenia Schnaider of X'U clothing works intensively with the Ukrainian art scene, and this project is another step towards the exciting fusion of art and fashion.
