Best of Tbilisi Fall 2017

Materiel by Aleksander Akhalkatsishvili

Tell me where your favorite designer is from and I can tell you the fashion landscape of the entire city. I know this phrase can’t be applied to every designer in the world but it perfectly explains the relationship between Demna Gvasalia and Tbilisi.

The resemblances are so freaky that I’ve started to think either Georgians really, truly love the 80’s more than anything right now OR Gvasalia is such a big fashion royalty that all emerging designers are following his footsteps, so much that sometimes they stepped a little too much on the back of his shoes – sock boots, extreme shoulder pads, suiting – everything Balenciaga was on Tbilisi runways.

There are of course some designers that, let’s say inspired by others instead of Gvasalia, like Materiel by Aleksander Akhalkatsishvili, Gola Damian or Dalood, but the Gvasalia effect was instantly recognizable, which is why Tbilisi has become one of the hottest fashion capitals lately. Here are some of my favorite looks from the Fall 2017 collections.
