The Girls And Garms Of MBFW Tbilisi Shot By Smagina Margarita

The new wave.

It’s practically impossible to talk about MBFW Tbilisi, or Georgian fashion in general, without bringing up Demna Gvasalia or that time Comme des Garçons shot an incredible campaign there in 1989. They may’ve put the place on the fash map, but there are loads of designers still holding the fort. Russian producer Roman Gunt, photographer Smagina Margarita and their crew spent the week photographing girls and garments to prove it.

In the editorial above, models Anna Zhivalova, Ani Chikhladze and Etuna Machavariani show off the best pieces from local designers (and names we’ve backed before) Situationist, Dalood, Lado Bokuchava and George Keburia.
