4 Of Our Favorite Georgian Designers By Kristi Veliaj
Hey Fashion Forward Pretty Birds,
It has been three weeks since Tbilisi Fashion Week ended and we still cannot get out of our brains the remarkable pieces that floated down the runway. The experience of TFW is definitely multifaceted. You fall in love with the simplicity of the people and the beauty of the landscapes that unravel before you while travelling from one place to the next. After attentively studying the fabrics and the production of the pieces, we have chosen 4 Georgian designers that left us with a sweet memory of our experience.
The kaleidoscope of colors that Irma explores in her mini collection is synonymous with a great artistic independence. This photographer and designer has an eye for a rainbow of new interpretations of the iconic Frida Khalo and the classic flower dress. Not to mention the scenery that brings all the different cultures together, while also remaining so warm at the same time.
Lako Bukia wins you over at first sight. The fashion show was filled with prints and dimension as soon as the first model stepped foot on the runway. Breath-taking one pieces, oversize dresses, raincoats worthy of the title “Best Metropolitan Little Red Riding Hood,” shoes and accessories to start avidly collecting. You can definitely see her years spent in New York.
From the moon to the stars, we take a trip of texture and brightness. The accessories offered from Georgia are pure fun, to be combined with structured dresses and designed for the woman with an urban spirit but ready in a blink of an eye for a cocktail in the hottest place in the city. Tbilisi sleeps under a sky of brilliant new ideas.
Matériel was born from a perfect love between Alexsander Akhalkatsishvili and Asian tailoring. The attitude of the collection represents a wish to go back to a more essential way of wearing clothing, where the dress is worn and interpreted, not only for its clean fit, but for the fabric that takes the collection to another level.
