Kilt for fashionista.
Attribute and statement

Eugene Sheshenin will talk about warrior, dandies, punks and plaid.
Plaid - evergreen tribal pattern, family ID antiquity and identification mark for a clan affiliation, symbol of connection with a certain social group (from the Scottish nationalist radicals to the city′s radical punk movement). A polite rebellion of dandyism (past and present) as well is not possible without the plaid.

Refined or brutal - fashion loves rebels. Fashion loves plaid. In the hands of the masters of fashion (McQueen, Chanel, Westwood, Dries van Noten) plaid started to talk and have said a lot of different interesting things.

Lecture "Kilt for fashionista. Attribute and statement " is created primarily for those, who are interested in global trends, fashion and the transformations of the modern lifestyle. It will be useful to those who is getting acquainted with the history and culture of Ukraine, as well as to those, who involved in comprehension and interpretation of our heritage and its "embedding" in the modern world. In short, on this meeting we are goung to work with the following question: "whether ethnics and traditional culture can be interesting for our digital age?"
