In cooperation with MERCEDES-BENZ TBLISI FASHION WEEK, a platform that has turned the spotlight on leading fashion designers from Georgia and the surrounding region, this SUPER event will showcase up-and-coming talents from the creative scene in Georgia.

The six brands present - AZNAURI, LALO, NINA ZARQUA, SITUATIONIST, TAMUNA INGOROKVA, TATUNA NIKOLAISHVILI – have also received the support of LEPL Enterprise Georgia.

Founded in Tblisi in 2016, Aznauri, with Irakli Rusadze (founder of the Situationist brand) as its Creative Director, mixes tradition – starting with the name of the brand that is a throwback to classic Georgian nobility – with styles that look to the 90’s, for a modern new minimalism. Initially launched with a line of gender-free clothing, the brand now offers a complete collection with bags and footwear, for a style that is rich in understatement.

Handmade workmanship is a hallmark of Lalo, the line created in 2016 by Lalo Dolidze, who was already the creative director, together with her twin sister Nina, of LaloCardigans. Each item is a unique handmade piece from Georgia, drawing its inspiration from nature, with silhouettes that recall the world of flowers and plants. The spotlight is on luxurious jacquard and yarns, in an original mix of forms and intarsia.

With many years of experience in the fashion industry, the Georgian model Nina Zarqua launched her self-named brand of footwear in 2016, quickly gaining international recognition. In her ultra-feminine creations, different creative outlets converge, from cinema to fashion, and from contemporary art to daily life.

Irakli Rusadze is one of the top Georgian fashion designers of international renown. The self-taught designer – which tread the catwalks with Situationist at the last edition of Milan Fashion Week - takes his inspiration from his native land, Georgia, and from the women who grew up amongst the difficulties of a post-Soviet nation. In his creations, beloved also by Gigi Hadid, strong tailoring meets a vintage style with Georgian cultural influences.

Tamuna Ingorokva established the self-named Georgian luxury womenswear brand in 2002, after completing her studies in fashion design in Paris, with a stint at Nina Ricci. With a unique and distinctive style, the brand’s collections express the complexity of the times we live in, but also the ambitions and desires of every woman.

Keen on design and fashion from childhood, the designer Tatuna Nikolaishvili develops, with her eponymous label, creations with unusual forms and original cuts for a feminine style with a modern edge.
