Tako Mekvabidze is redefining what it means to be a born-and-bred Georgian designer. This season, unlike the previous year, Mekabidze decided to organize her 2020 cruise show in a place other than her usual Tbilisi Mercedes Benz Fashion Week stomping grounds. Those of you who were previously unaware of Georgian design now know who to thank for signature cool-girl leather trenches, outwear, and celebrity-adorned teeny-tiny sunglasses. This Kendall Jenner approved brand is set to take the fashion world by storm, and if her latest collection is any indication of where hes headed, Fashion goers in LA are in for a real treat.
Tako’s design process pays homage to the culturally rich city she grew up in and its many offerings: from ancient and unbroken culture, untouched flora, lush mountains, and of course the vast Black Sea. Tako truly reminds us how important it is to celebrate and mine our respective cultures while not compromising our individuality and unique vision within design and makes her LA Fashion Week debut this coming October.
