Ode to Georgia & A Tribute To Women
BIBI BACHTADZE COUTURE
“For most of history, Anonymous, was a woman” Virginia Wolf
The Georgian designer and founder of Bibi Bachtadze Couture, Anna Schäfer, created an exceptional brand through the fusion of two cultures, Georgia and Germany, by enhancing the characteristics and qualities of women.
Georgia is a country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe. It is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia and finally to the south-east by Azerbaijan. A country so rich in its culture, its history and natural beauty it is also known for its rich folklore, unique traditional music, theatre, cinema, art and excellent wine.
In Georgia lies Anna’s foundation and her roots. As the artist herself describes it: “ the constant and ever-returning part of me. The omnipresent character of my past”. In Berlin, on the other hand, lies her present and her future: “ The fanciful, empathic and visionary side”.
Bibi Bachtadze is her authentic expression; her very own trademark, her being “and at the same time the reflection of the time in which I live and have lived”.
Her creations are a tribute to femininity, an expression of admiration for the woman- “this mysterious gender who can be simultaneously strong and fragile, innocent yet so amazingly seductive, cold blooded and so caring” She describes the woman as a being that is so magnetically attractive but at the same time so intimidating, denying and forbidding. “An anomaly whose opposites unite and reconcile within itself”.
The woman. The daughter, the sister, the mother, life creator. Caring and loving. Seductive yet innocent and fragile. Her collection is divided into three categories: Noir, Pure and Voyage. Her trademark is elegance and lace. With a perfect cut, the texture seems to lie on the skin like water would. Soft colours and soft shapes. Elegance, simplicity yet sophisticated and feminine. Slippery silk and delicate lacework. Not only German celebrities and nobles are wearing her creations but others such as Kendal Jenner and Eva Longoria are great clients too.
The showroom is on Jägerstrasse 5 in Berlin and her collections can be found in Germany as well as in Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Zürich, Milano, Kiev, Seoul and Beirut.Trunkshow soon to be in Dubai. Have a look under www.bibibachtadze.com Instagram: @bibibachtadze Facebook: Bibi Bachtadze Couture
