Reconstruction of the Ancient Georgian Costume

This conceptual installation will introduce the work of eight young designers, all BA and MA students and graduates of the Fashion Design Department, Tbilisi State Academy of Arts. The new re-constructed jewellery will be on display too. Video art will unite the concepts of old and new, representing the movement from the ancient and traditional to the contemporary, re-constructed approach in fashion design.
