I AM VOLYA was born in London as an online boutique to bring all the iconic Ukrainian designers in one place and make them widely available for the people of the United Kingdom. We create an immersive shopping experience reflecting on bravery, empowerment and creativity of Ukrainian modern culture. We believe that Ukrainian fashion identity is strong, fierce and unique and we want the world to know about it.
Our concept lies in embracing your sexuality, empowering your femininity and not being afraid to stand out, be bold and fight for your freedom!
We also host immersive pop-up events around London. Our last pop-up "Carol of the Bells" took place on the 9-18th of December at 7 Dray Walk, E1 6QL and was dedicated to customs and traditions of Ukrainian Christmas season.
