Fashion historian Djurdja Bartlett chairs a panel exploring how fashion reacts to and embraces the global crisis of borders and displacement. Taking the current Western interest in young Georgian design as a particular case study and starting point, this features Tbilisi-based designers Irakli Rusadze and Tamuna Ingorokva, alongside writer and curator Anastasiia Fedorova. Addressing the current Georgian fashion scene, the panel asks how young fashion designers can establish their own narrative in the globalised fashion world and how do borders work to delineate nation and collective visual identities, especially in the context of rising nationalism. This is presented as part of New Borders, New Boundaries: Fashion in the Shifting World, in partnership with TrAIN: The Research Centre for Transnational Art, Identity and Nation, University of the Arts London and Calvert 22.

This three-day events series engages writers, historians and a number of young designers from Austria, Georgia, Ukraine and the UK, who live and work between their homeland and the West and who creatively draw on their heritage in their engagement with the field of Western fashion. Read more:
