For the first time in Georgian fashion history the event will be broadcast exclusively on Fashion TV in the middle of May. “It’s very important that Georgian designers have started to work with such world famous brands as Roberto Bravo and the Black Rose collection must have a symbolic meaning for us” declared politician David Saganelidze.
The catwalk was graced with 40 evening dresses made from natural materials: chiffon, atlas, silk, cotton, exclusive stockinette.
