Aleksandra Volkova

Hi, I am Aleksandra Volkova, I am the founder of Volkova PR & Fashion Talents Agency and UA in UK Community.

This is a new community in UK created in November 2022. We were planned to work only for fashion & beauty specialists. But now the list of participants has been replenished with other areas. There is already different business, art and music & other.

Before coming to London, I had my own event & model agency in Ukraine from 2008, organized more than 500 events in Ukraine, work with more than 300 models. Since 2013, I have done 2 times a year – South of Ukraine Fashion Days. I have extensive experience in organizing large events and selecting talents. I had awards from the authorities in Ukraine for the development of culture and youth policy. Now here, I want to acquaint the British society with the works of cultural talents of Ukraine – organise exhibitions of artists and photographers, present Ukrainian cinematography, make fashion shows and showrooms with sales of Ukrainian fashion brands, make networking, in future – performances by Ukrainian theatre groups, hold free workshops, performances, trainings, concerts.

I dream to open modern cultural Ukrainian centre in London to represent modern creative talents and represent Ukrainian culture in different ways.

I first moved to London in April 2022 due to the outbreak of the war and the inability to live and work in my native town – Mykolaiv. I lost my team, business and flat. Here I start life from scratch, like hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians who came to Britain. When I arrive, I worked 8 months in local model & talent agency for short term contract.

When looking for a new job, I faced a lot of obstacles and rejections due to problems of high qualifications, mistrust of my experience or dissatisfaction with my accent. I met many Ukrainian girls who faced the same problem – this was the impetus for creating a community to unite and support Ukrainians who are facing similar problems. UA in UK Community celebrated foundation in 11 of November 2022, during which time we held 156 events for Ukrainians (most of them is free), became finalists of The Business Awards Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster in the “best new business” category as supporting company, held 3 evening-presentation of Ukrainian brands in the official schedule of London Fashion Week (February and September 2023, February 2024), became project partners of Ukrainian Fashion Week in UK (3 season of LFW).

Most of time I work alone with support from our members-volunteers. At this moment we have near 250 members, 900 subscribers for our news at mail and 5.7k followers. I dream to open modern cultural Ukrainian centre in London to represent modern creative talents and represent Ukrainian culture in different ways.
