Moschino [tv] H&M and MBFW Tbilisi Weekend

So much happened over that weekend. Tbilisi hosted another fashion week, gathering local and international fashion community in a brand new location – Museum of Fine Arts in the heart of Tbilisi (Nov 1-5). However, I didn’t get the chance to attend all of the shows I had an interest in so, let’s start with the reason why:

As many of you know my fulltime job takes place at H&M Georgia. And this year we hosted designer collaboration in Tbilisi for the first time and Moschino [tv] H&M couldn’t launch without an exclusive VIP event, in organization of which I was majorly involved. The event was fabulous and took place on Saturday evening. The only fashion show that worked it’s way into my pre-event schedule was 15 minutes of Materiel on Friday evening. 

On the Sunday morning after HMOSCHINO event I dressed up and ran to catch upon some shows. While dressing up in the morning I was looking for something cosy, in neutral fall colors but wanted to have a flawy, feminine silhouette. And let me tell you, this look made me feel “comfortable in my own skin”.

The first one was ANOUKI. Super girly, feminine collection with a lot of pink and sparkle (just as I like). Must-haves from this  collection are definitely shoes and bags! The bags are something else and I have no idea how anyone can not be falling for them.

The afternoon continued with George Keburia, showcasing all the current trends (such as biking shorts, some neon, etc.) with the topping of a chefs hat. It followed by Aleksandre Akhalkacishvili and I ended the day with DALOOD. The next day, back at the office I was catching up with a friend on past weekend I stated that while DALOOD always seems to be keeping up with the internationally established trends, it tends to always create the image of a confident, strong woman, which I love to see over and over again.

Those of you who follow me on Instagram have probably seen all of this in my IG stories. So make sure to keep up and see everything first!

Thanks and wish you a day full of beauty!

All Of (My) 2017 In One

ტაკეაუIt’s been a little while since I last posted but I’m sure I wasn’t the only one, who got too busy this holiday season. This is the most wonderful time of the year but what makes it even more special to me is taking a moment to realize what a journey this year has been.

Taking this moment right now I can tell that 2017 has changed my life drastically. I visited 4 new countries/cities for both, business and leisure. Carrier wise, it’s been a huge inspiration for me to get invited to some of the shows at London Fashion Week and working with one of my favorite London based street style photographers Moeez Tali. This period has not only increased the number of Takeau.com readers but also boosted my motivation to go for more! One of that MORE was my first ever feature in VOGUE.com‘s street style chronicles as well as in ELLE USA. And several months later I signed a contract with H&M as a member of the first management team in Georgia. I left for Croatia and spent 3 months of summer developing and learning for my new position but I also found time for pleasure.

I traveled with my girls to Barcelona, Spain for the first time and it has been a trip I will never forget. I spent the best time and some unforgettable memories! I also found time for myself when I left for a long weekend to Venice, Italy. Spent time wondering and exploring and eating on my own but as it has already become a tradition I found some Georgian friends to spend a nice evening with there too!

Later this year, working at my full-time job, I decided to post weekly on my blog and develop the content to make it more interesting to you. And one of my New Year resolutions is to keep developing and growing and capturing!

Of course, as any other year this one also had some looses. It was a major lost for me and while it is still very emotional and personal for me, I will just say that there is a special place in my heart that will stay with me forever.

There is so much more, little and big things that have started this year. And I can not wait to share more of it later on- in 2018! It has been a long year and I am grateful for all the opportunities and people that 2017 brought. You guys have also been a very important part of it so thank you for that!

Special thanks to my good friend and a talented fashion illustrator Tinatin Gvasalia for the illustration above. Check her out for more of her magic here.

So, that’s it for now. See you next time in 2018!
Happy New Year my dearest readers! Wish you a special one!

 

 

 

 

 

Weekly Favorites

Last Monday turned out to be perfectly productive for me. Other than finding time to run all the errands and getting small things done, I took a little detour to snap this outfit, starring my new baby bag! This cutest Simon Miller mini nubuck bucket bag has been intriguing me for a while before I got my hands on it. Turns out that this tiny one can fit more than I thought and it makes any casual look so much more upscale.

Shortly about the rest of the outfit: My shoes are Zara (probably inspired by Celine boots, that’s what they remind me), very into these shapes right now. Sweater is COS (great quality! Similar here). Love the long, chunky sleeves and the texture. White shirt underneath is H&M Studio collection AW17 (with high cutouts on the sides). And tailored pants are from Mango. Little tip: I like to roll up the pants in an uneven, effortless way to make tailored pants look casual and cool.

Hope you enjoyed this #ootd post just as much as I felt about wearing and carrying it!

Thank you for catching up!

Stay tuned for the next blogpost next Wednesday!
