A Ukrainian Bridal Brand Is Making Wedding Gowns And Army Assault Vests

BUCHAREST, Romania – Ukrainian fashion brand Milla Nova, known for its decadent wedding gowns, is now producing attire for the country’s soldiers and medical workers, as Russia continues to launch its brutal attack on the country.

Stocked in bridal boutiques across 50 countries including the U.S., U.K., France and China, employees of Milla Nova have working tirelessly over the last two weeks to fulfill international dress orders while also making these additional garments. ‘Along with making brides around the globe happy, we are focused on saving our country’, said the company’s CEO Ulyana Kyrychuk, who is fiercely determined to continue to sustain the business despite the many serious challenges of the war.

Photos from Milla Nova shared with CNN show women knitting military nets, and seamstresses sewing fleece hoodies and assault vests in traditional army camouflage.

Working with its network of suppliers, the brand was able to quickly source necessary materials for production. Kyrychuk told CNN they have already made 1,500 items.
