Invited by WHITE MILANO as a special guest, Irakli Rusadze unleashed a collection marked by sexy sartorial ensembles that featured daring necklines and body-hugging trousers.

"It's all about who Georgian women are today. Their spirit and what they are wearing," Rusadze said backstage, where he admitted that he made most of the collection out of his apartment. "I never went to school. I picked up my trade along the way working with various people in the industry," the designer said modestly.

Quirky tailoring was a hallmark of this show. Fan-shaped stitching and half circle pockets rendered this collection a must-see for those in search of new talent. Wool and leather were dominant on the catwalk, cropped tailored pants mixed with dominatrix jumpsuits, killer cat woman boots and winter sandals. "I don't like using synthetic materials. Almost everything I use is some sort of natural fabric," he added.

"White is all about pushing the envelope with contemporary designs and designers. We travel the world looking for people like him," said said WHITE organizer Massimiliano Bizzi backstage.
