Situationist - Georgia

Situationist - Georgia

Self-trained designer Irakli Rusadze founded Situationist in 2016. The brand is now stocked in Browns and shows at Paris Fashion Week. Distinctive pattern-cutting forms the basis of designs, alongside a desire to challenge ‘post-Soviet’ stereotypes and reflect on contemporary social problems in Georgia. Situationist has an ongoing collaboration with the Bassiani nightclub in Tbilisi and frequently collaborates with young Georgian artists. Irakli's installation, titled Borders, draws inspiration from the work of filmmaker Sergei Parajanov.
