ALEKSANDRE AKHALKATSISHVILI – a Georgian brand founded by Georgian designer Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili, a graduate of Tbilisi State Academy of Arts and winner of Be Next Fashion Design Contest of 2015.
Aleksandre had been a head designer of one of the Georgian brands MATÉRIEL since 2015. His brand’s first individual collection is Fall/Winter 2018/19, which brought him an amazing success. The collection caught the eye of very important international buyers and press representatives.
Designer says his goal is to create beautiful clothes that you’ll still want to wear years from now. Expect unique tailoring made from natural fabrics like wool and silk. The brand keeps waste to a minimum and fashion slow.
Ethical working process with a small factory where designer closely works with his employees. All pieces are made in Tbilisi, Georgia. 100% of employees are women. Brand does not use the natural fur and leather.
By using the deconstructive minimalism which has well become the brand’s philosophy, designer is trying to represent a modern woman who is much aligned with the 21st century trends and not afraid of the challenges. The initial spark of inspiration is garment. Vegan leather has become standard within the label. Early 2000’s minimalism has a major impact on the collection. The result is a lineup of vary wearable pieces.
