Viktoriia Vlasenko Explores Military Conflict In ‘No War’

LOS ANGELES – Fashion designer-turned film producer Viktoriia Vlasenko shares an anti-war message in the new film “No War,” starring Fosca Ferraro and Lauren Garner. The film, now streaming on Amazon, is part of a larger campaign that includes a book and a fashion line that that aims to show women as strong, assertive and able to overcome challenges.

Directed by Nicole Piccione, “No War” tells the story of how the conflict in the Ukraine impacts women and how they deal with its many aspects. The film features Vlasenko’s unique designs that include a variety of materials and colors with a military theme.

The movie has received a number of awards, including golden trophy for Best Costumes at the Oniros Film Awards, an award for Best Short Film at the Queen Palm International Film Festival, as well as was named an official selection at the WRPN Women’s International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Winter Shorts Film Festival, and the International Ocean Film Festival.

The film arrives with an accompanying 200-page book titled “No War,” featuring an assortment of Vlasenko’s fashions that echo the movie’s anti-war theme. The book begins with a step-by-step description of the Ukrainian crisis, documentary photographs, and photos of models wearing military makeup which was skillfully done by the designer herself.

Vlasenko is known for her work as costume designer as well as a make up artist on films and television and on the stage. Her recent work includes such films as the upcoming “Loss of Grace,” and “Malfunction,” as well as “Sheela” (2018), “Betrayed” (2018), “Let Me Go Again,” (2017), “Terrasse White” (2017), “Mr. Heart” (2016) and others.
