With the advent of independence, Ukraine began to change extremely quickly. After the fall of the Iron Curtain, all the mainstreams of the West that had been inaccessible for many decades burst in. It was the finest hour for everyone who wasn’t afraid to express themselves. A lot of new musicians, artists, fashion designers, and other artists appeared in a few years.
In the 90s, Ukrainians lived as if every day was their last day. Firstly, it was because of the spirit of permissiveness after the collapse of the totalitarian USSR, and secondly, because of the end of the millennium, the approach of 2000, when rumors were circulating about the end of the world and the beginning of a new era.
This is the second story in the series. The first one was about Ukrainian fashion in the 1970s and 1980s.
