Wait – how do you pronounce Tbilisi and where the heck is this place, right?!
Tbilisi is pronounced (according to Wikipedia) ti-BEE-li-see, and is the capital of the country of Georgia.
Well, according to Vogue Mag ever since Georgian designer, Demna Gvasalia, re-energized the fashion industry with his label Vetements in 2014, Tbilisi Fashion Week has enjoyed a lot of extra attention from editors, buyers, influencers, and fashion fans. The country’s capital is home to experimental up-and-coming designers, as well as celebrities-approved labels like Situationist. And the street style isn’t to be missed, either.
Quoting W Mag: There is nothing more exciting than when a city finds its beat for the first time. Cue: the Parisian avant-garde of the ’20s, the San Franciscan beatniks of the ’50s, and the East Berlin ravers of the ’90s.
Now it’s Tbilisi’s turn, the coolest emerging city you most likely never heard of. Sandwiched between Azerbaijan, Russia, Armenia, and the Black Sea, the Georgian capital was exonerated from Soviet rule in 1992, and has been gaining steam as a city on-the-verge for its cultural happenings and budding underground scene. From its legendary techno clubs to its museums and culinary scene, Tbilisi is in the midst of a transition, with the help of artists and creatives who flock to and from the city for inspiration.
Vogue was on the ground photographing the best looks outside the shows, where a few themes have already emerged: Fanny packs, oversized coats, and thick sneakers are still trending, and super-bright colors are a welcome mood-elevator in the frigid weather.
