Together with her mother, the girl painted the bodysuit in which the models were to appear in the finale of the show.

For this, they used old pans, which they probably brought with them to the United States from Ukraine when they emigrated.

"My mom helped me dye the bodysuit in yellow and blue colors in old Ukrainian metal pans so that they perfectly matched the flag of Ukraine. I told my models on the catwalk about the importance of the sunflower - it was not just a beautiful flower, it was a symbol of hope and resilience of the Ukrainian people," Nataliya concluded.

Already at a mature age, Natalia moved to New York, and then to Paris, to enter the famous Parsons School of Design and learn the techniques of high fashion.
