We’ve landed in the new emerging fashion capital, Tbilisi, and handpicked the Georgian designers that deserve to be known. On BoF’s radar, Georgian fashion is taking over the industry. Fashion houses like Vetements, Balenciaga and David Koma are led by Georgian creative directors that bring a fresh and edgy touch to our everyday fashion.
Georgian design breaks boundaries not only when it comes to gender but when it comes to innovation. Architectural pieces, overflowing lines and minimal design dominates Georgian runways bringing a fresh perspective to our closets.
For your insider scoop, we interviewed top Georgian Influencer Ani Pkhakadze on her perspective on her local fashion.
“Georgian designers are very progressive. They always want to evolve and find something new in what they do. As a former Soviet country, with no exposure or inspiration to the rest of the world, designers had to get inspired by their everyday life and surroundings locally. They reinvented themselves to inspire their everyday life.”
Thanks to Ani’s local expertise, we’ve discovered some of the best Georgian designers and made them accessible internationally, dropping them on Cult Mia for you to discover.
