ART FASHION – RECONSTRUCTION 2 – ACADEMY’S LABYRINTHS
This conceptual art-fashion project is centred on the reconstruction of the historic building of Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, an architectural monument of cultural heritage in itself.
A true cultural crossroads, the building’s exterior appearance is both artistic and eclectic. The facade is typically European, yet inside, the Baroque co-exists with elements of late Classicist and Iranian Qajar styles. Here, art and fashion are represented as a tool and an appeal for the survival of an iconic building.
Designers include: Eloshi, Lasha Devdariani, Salome Totladze.
