Collection – On The Brink

GUDU continues to tell a story about how the fashion of the nineties evolves. What was previously considered vulgar, defiant becomes meaningful, and then gloss.
Most of the ideas and images of the collection was taken from the streets of the city - the clothes of ordinary passers-by, urban freaks, office workers, sellers. This redesigned and matured style of the nineties formed the basis for the new spring-summer collection. Lasha Mdinaradze found the equation that humbles pride, but does not destroy individuality: balanced cut is accompanied by aggressive color, restrained colours are used in daring textures. Women's sexuality has a masculine character, but it is softened by light textures, tender colours or naive details.
