Five years ago, on May 20, 2019, the sixth president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, was inaugurated. The ceremony was traditionally attended by the first lady, Olena Zelenska, who charmed with her exquisite look.

She wore a milk-colored suit by the Ukrainian brand ARTEMKLIMCHUK. According to designer Artem Klymchuk, a team of seven craftsmen spent 184 hours (7 and a half days) creating the dress, VOGUE writes.

The ensemble consisted of a dress and a cape jacket made of silk-wool crepe. To design the outfit, the craftsmen used traditional Ukrainian techniques that adapted floral and animalistic motifs from early nineteenth-century carpets of the Sumy and Poltava regions. "The arrangement of the elements on the cap is inspired by the symbolism of Trypillian culture," Klymchuk said.
