Tbilisi Fashion Week F/W 2017 : Diary
After a few hours of visiting Tbilisi, I was absolutely impressed by their culture, architecture and progressive generation. I've heard a lot about Georgians as a close-minded and non-friendly society, but all that rumours weren't veracious. But let's talk to the point and discuss the fashion industry in Georgia.
In recent years in post-soviet countries, the fashion industry is developing progressively and have nothing in common with Moscow. Georgian designers like Demna Gvasalia, Ria Keburia and David Koma have a huge success outside of post-soviet space. But it's the same with Georgia based designers whose creations are admired by many influential fashion insiders. I really like their aesthetics and all that atmosphere, by the way, the influence of Demna Gvasalia on their collections were visible.
The first day of fashion week was dedicated to the Georgian actress Sofiko Chiaureli, the muse of Sergei Parajanov. Beautiful models brought into reality the movie "The Color of Pomegranates" directed by Parajanov where Sofiko starred in. It was amazing to see how Georgians appreciate the art of Parajanov and his unmeasured talent.
During my trip I found a really special designer for me, I'm about Ani Datukishvili. She presented her collection in an unusual environment at old gothic school. The main features of her collection were experimental cuttings, absolutely transparent dresses, gentle ruffles of jersey and brutal lacquer. Except for her sense of fashion, she is a great person and while talking to her I've got an enormous amount of good vibes.
I also liked the collection of Éthéré Accessoire. As you know I'm a big fan of the military style in fashion, and I really liked her approach to it. There are a few designers who caught my attention as well and as a conclusion, I would like to share with you the coolest looks of TFW.
