The show, which took place at the Georgian Museum of Fine Arts, was presented as part of the #MercedesBenz #fashion Talents program (MBFT), which has been committed to supporting emerging design talent globally since its launch in 2009; enabling young designers to showcase their designs outside of their home nations.
