George Shaghashvilii Interview for The Glass Pineapple
During The Glass Pineapple’s recent trip to Tbilisi Fashion Week in Georgia, one of the runway shows that really stood out for us was George Shaghashvilii, a former medic now doing wonderful things with polka dots, who sees endless potential in black. The designer himself admits coming late to fashion but says he has always had an eye for the artistic, creating his first collection while studying for his medical qualifications.
After a joining Fashion Design at the Academy of Arts in Tbilisi, Shaghashvilii finally went ‘full fashion’ and at Tbilisi Fashion Week in April, his AW16 collection, Earth is a Polka Dot, closed the event. An homage to black, it was as dramatic as it was singular and the experience inspired us to find out more about the designer behind the brand.
