Didn’t we tell you not to sleep on Tbilisi Fashion Week?
Never skimping on their denim, these fashion week-goers threw caution to the wind, mixing patterns, going bold, and being unabashedly unapologetic.
We’ve rounded up the looks we need in our closet. Let us know your favorites in the comments below.
In Tbilisi, Georgia—just 65 miles away from Russia’s border—is a small, yet bustling fashion week.
Taking center stage as an emerging designer in Tbilisi Fashion Week is Ani Datukishvili; the Georgian designer began her brand in 2016 after graduating from Central Saint Martins and Istituto Marangoni.
Her spring/summer collection kept to timeless neutrals, the clean whites, grays, and blacks a blank canvas for her future.
Utilizing metallic, and a bit of sparkle, each piece came to life. The unique folds in the collection emanated a carefree, laid-back vibe, juxtaposing the sheer fabrics and corsets that give this collection its classic femininity.
Datukishvili challenged herself with fun silhouettes and adding asymmetrical details.
With a collection that ranges from casual to cocktail, Ani Datukishvili is ready to put Tbilisi Fashion Week on the map. Stay tuned.

A fashion week favorite, Dan Liu specializes in femininity. And this S/S ’18 season, he created a collection of cocktail attire ready to whisk you away to a dream getaway, inspired by the concept of, “Smell the Sea, Feel the Breeze, Hear the Ocean, Be at Ease”.
As soft melodies plays in the background, the models gently sway down the runway, trapped in a fairytale romance.
Pairing the classics of ruffles and lace, Liu brings us into spring and summer with serene floral prints. But delicate gold details are interrupted by pops of graphic prints, and the peacock-inspired makeup is just the right amount of oomf.
Doused in classic whites, pale pinks, and blues in sweet hemlines, the versatility and wearability of this collection is not to be overlooked. Crystal-accented pieces are tastefully added for just the right amount of elegance.
For Dan Liu, “Feeling is much more important than other senses that we have. Yes, our eyes can see and ears can hear, but I’d rather feel…”
Soak in the sun’s rays and imagine yourself a heroine in Dan Liu’s whirlwind of romance.

Climbing the ranks of familiarity through jewel-encrusted watches, Galtiscopio took on fashion with its debut at NYFW: First Stage. As jewel tones and embellishments shined across the room, the chic and elegant collection was undoubtedly a head turner.
What could have easily become an evening collection, with its array of plunging necklines and jeweled hip cutouts, was balanced out with bodysuits and grommet pieces. The presentation also included a capsule collection of graphic t-shirts to break up the formality, showing Galtiscopio is not afraid to have a little fun.
Describing the collection, designer Ying Lau stated, “It is a mixture of creativity and contemporary. I would like every woman to show her unique, confident, splendid and elegant personality.”
And in this collection, we have no doubt they will.

Designer Isabel Felmer
Collaborating with mannequin brand Hans Boodt, Isabel Felmer’s S/S ’18 collection is about giving the people a show.
The French Chilean, born in Berlin, combined the intricacies of design with her own photos as prints, inspired by the ’80s model Sayoko.
A futuristic, yet retro, feel, the fun colors and silhouettes is both modern and dramatic, a nod to Felmer’s experience as a costume designer.
Felmer presented her S/S ’18 collection as performance art to Paris Fashion Week stylistas, with four socialites in the spotlight.
