"From Seoul Fashion Week to Budapest Central European Fashion Week, more Spring 2019 collections are continuing to debut outside of the New York-London-Milan-Paris circuit. On Monday, we saw the conclusion of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi, which has increasingly attracted influencers, buyers and editors from across the globe, hoping to witness the next up-and-coming talent out of Georgia. After all, thanks to successful designers like Demna Gvasalia and David Koma, as well as emerging brands Situationist and George Keburia, the post-Soviet country has become the world's most exciting fashion destination.

Read on to find out about our favorite collections, and their designers, from the latest season of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi.

Georgian fashion house Materia's premium label Materiel serves as an incubator for local designers to create and manufacture collections with on-trend, global appeal. For its Spring 2019 collection, head designers and Tbilisi State Academy of Arts alums Lado Bokuchava and Aleksandre Akhalkatsishvili expanded upon Materiel's expertise in structured, minimal silhouettes, complementing them with unexpected takes on coats with circular cut-outs at the waist, fabrics (mirrored silver, faux leather and silk) and suiting — jackets that are cropped or feature extended hems, for example. It's no wonder Materiel is one of the most anticipated shows of the week."
