Why did you choose this look?

It was a perfect weather in Tbilisi, I just wanted to show little bit of skin and I chose perfect pool party look.

What is your most cherished fashion related memory?

Fashion evokes real, raw feelings which aren't a lot but for instance when I have a photo shoot as a stylist or I am modeling myself I am always emotional. For me this is the most valuable thing to reach in art.

The most disliked trend?

Post soviet aesthetics isn't close to my heart.

How would you describe your personal style?

I can't say that I am minimalistic but for me less is always more. Japanese designers make huge influence on my general style.

Every designer can have an ups and downs I wouldn't judge them too strictly. I always follow Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garcons and Junya Watanabe they are incredible as well as Phoebe Philo old Celine and vintage clothes.
