Cosmo Lady, with the esteemed support of international partner and disaster medicine expert, Dr. Rajeev Fernando, founder of the Chiraj Charity Organisation, recently orchestrated the dazzling Ukrainian Fashion Day.
This transcendent event seamlessly blended culture, philanthropy, and the unwavering spirit of Ukrainian women, featuring the visionary creations of the renowned designer and disaster medicine expert, Dr. Rajeev Fernando.

This infusion of Indian style into suits introduced a fresh perspective on traditional attire, already making waves in the Ukrainian fashion scene.
Beyond the glamour of the runway, Dr. Fernando’s philanthropic efforts were evident in a collection of medical scrubs adorned with the Ukrainian flag. In collaboration with Dumbell in India, this initiative symbolized perseverance and national pride, reflecting the designer’s commitment to supporting healthcare workers, particularly during times of war.
Complementing the Fusion and Medical Collections, Dr. Fernando’s Leather Collection emerged as a sustainable statement in the fast-paced world of fashion. Utilizing environmentally friendly materials such as Suede with full vegetarian tanning and Lamb Skin with semi-vegetarian tanning, the collection showcased a commitment to natural, eco-conscious products.
