Finalist of Benext fashion design contest 2017, Tbilisi

Our behavior is driven by our desires and bound by our psychological complexes. When I designed my collection subconsciously I let my personal complexes to manifest themselves in my work. However seeing them detached from myself, in the garments that I have designed, it has liberated me from most of my complexes. I wish my clothes will also help others to set themselves free, living the life they want to live. As the designer I want to collaborate with people who are holding the secret of traditional handcraft techniques. People that make magical things with their hands. I met the ordinary people, who are living in small villages of my beloved country. In my future collection I want this magic to be showcased. I hope that using their magic work in my collections will set me free from footprint of dark 90’s in my spirit. I see the future of fashion, driven by millennials, the canons set by last century fashion authorities will be overthrown soon. It will be a completely new fashion, without historical fetters, driven by energy and free spirit of millennials.
