On December, 7 2010 NATO headquarters hosted the presentation of the Euro-Atlantic Fashion Collection, created by Ukrainian designer Olena Dats and commissioned by the Institute of World Policy. The mannequins at NATO headquarters hall featured the best collection samples, decorated with North Atlantic Treaty Organization ornament. The plasma screens were showing the Ukrainian models demonstrating the collection at the catwalk.

The event took place on the threshold of the Ukraine-NATO Commission meeting.

The official presentation of the Euro-Atlantic Fashion Collection was attended by diplomats accredited at NATO headquarters, journalists, representatives of the Mission of Ukraine to NATO.

The exhibition was opened by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Belgium and Head of the Mission of Ukraine to NATO Ihor Dolhov.

Alyona Getmanchuk, Director of the Institute of World Policy, pointed out in the opening word that Euro-Atlantic Fashion Collection is aimed at changing the emotional perception of NATO among Ukrainians: We at the Institute of World Policy are convinced that in order to give information about NATO you must first create a wish to hear it. Ms. Getmanchuk also called on the audience not to forget Ukraine, as sooner or later Ukraine will return on the Euro-Atlantic orbit.

In his turn Michel Duray, head of the NATO Public Diplomacy Division, said that it was an unprecedented event in NATOs history which will be long talked about.

The presentation was followed by informal communication of the representatives of NATO headquarters and journalists with IWP delegation Viktor Shlinchak, head of IWP board, Alyona Getmanchuk, IWP director, and Olena Dats, who had created the collection.

The idea of the Euro-Atlantic Collection appeared at the Institute of World Policy a year ago. It was realized within the Ukrainian Fashion Week in March 2010.
