A Ukrainian Girl is Named Darina-2
DESCRIPTIONDarina is one of the most popular names in Ukraine, meaning “gift”. Many talents Ukrainian artists chose to leave their country and worked overseas, especially after the Russo-Ukrainian War broke out this year.
This Daria is one of many Ukrainian models living in the US. I met her at New York when she just came to New York. This set of editorial fashion photos, with some Ukrainian elements in the styling, are presented to encourage and support those Ukrainian artists who have to leave their countries but struggle to survive all over the world.
