Ukrainian Fashion Mini Series: Iryna Kokhana founder of Chereshnivska

Season 2, Ep. 10

Today Jonathan and Rachel interview Iryna Kokhana founder of Chereshnivska.

Chereshnivska is a unisex sustainable fashion brand that has committed to making sure that at least 50% of its production uses recycled materials. Chereshnivska features hand drawn prints by the brand's creative director Anastasiya Rozava. Earlier this year Chereshnivska showed in Helsinki and then at Paris Fashion Week for the very first time there spring summer 2023 collection. Art is very important to Chereshnivska as is offering a range of designs with sizing that does not differentiate between men and women.

Iryna takes a responsibility as a leader very seriously. Long before her company was operating during war time, her love of fashion and style was nurtured by her parents. After the detestable second Russian invasion began back in February, things felt more bleak to them than they do right now. Today, Iryna tells us they're used to working during war, well, at least as much as people can be. She's looking forward planning for what will come next, hiring new employees, looking for places where good work will make a difference.
