Mykhailo Deyak, artist: "This project interested because the essence of the project is the integration of art to the masses. Why artwork should be only in museums? Art can and should be integrated into society, because when art is all around us, with us, we will be different, we will be interesting and unusual, and can offer others something interesting. Art is around us, art is we!".
Victor Deysun, artist: "I gladly agreed to participate in this unusual project. Until recently, I did not know what I will paint. I wanted it to be a complete surprise and impromptu. Jacket figure suggested the answer -subtle elegant ... I am confident that this collaboration will result not only in the art collection of clothing, but also in super popular fashion trend. "
Serge Payet artist: "I created this art object, based on the Garden of Claude Monet and his residence in Giverny. This is a fabulous place that remains in the memories of a lifetime. Some flowers change the others, everything blooms and smells like a paradise. I immortalized this principle in my work combining techniques such as paper decorations and origami. "
