Georgian Fashion Foundation Prize re-launches for the year 2022 

Georgian Fashion Foundation Prize is proud to announce its re-launch for the year 2022. It is a project initiated by the Georgian Fashion Foundation to reward creatives who need support and guidance. As a part of the programme, participants will receive sponsor aid, collaboration opportunities and personal, detailed mentorship. “Support must not be a matter of declarations, it must be visible to every participant and industry representative”, – states the Georgian Fashion Foundation team.

The contestants are welcome to apply at the official website. The deadline for submission is September 15th

Georgia continues to position itself as the centre of gravity for creatives. The Prize was established by Sofia Tchkonia (BoF 500), the founder of one of the most significant fashion weeks in Eastern Europe – Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi. The project finalists’ greeting ceremony should have been in Tbilisi in the spring of 2022. But because of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine the GFF ideologist, Sofia Tchkonia changed her focus to helping Ukrainians and curating charitable events to raise money for humanitarian aid. The Georgian Fashion Foundation Prize awarding ceremony was postponed until autumn with all prior applications still eligible – except those from Russian or Belorussian contestants. New contestants are also welcome to apply – the deadline for submission is September 15th.

10 semi-finalists will be selected by October 1st. Semi-finalists will receive access to the GFF tutorship program – a unique chance to get tailored advice and mentorship from international industry experts, attend webinars and meet buyers. The final gala event concluding the Georgian Fashion Foundation Prize will take place in Tbilisi in November 2022.
