Irakli Nasidze is a rare breed in the fashion industry. He is an artist, a couturier, and a ready-to-wear designer who started exercising his artistic vision early on in his life. He has collaborated with Dior, Chanel and Chopard, where he experimented with blends of collage, embroidery and traditional knits. As a couturier, his work often involved stained glass, metalwork, architectural objects, and motifs of birds and beasts. A native Georgian who currently resides in Paris, Nasidze was greatly inspired by his surroundings where everything is a blur of cultures, between Asian and European, Persian and Ottoman. This same inspiration has carried on throughout his diverse work.
His current ready-to-wear label, IRAKLI Paris (irakli.fr), focuses on modern cut technique, luxury material and spirituality.
