Tbilisi is the focus of the current issue of W magazine, with an article by Gillian Sagansky, entitled “What Life is Like in Tbilisi, Eastern Europe’s Coolest City”. The series of photographs by Julien Boudet catches the every day life of Georgia’s capital, featuring some of its buildings, streets, and young people.
“There is nothing more exciting than when a city finds its beat for the first time. Cue: the Parisian avant-garde of the '20s, the San Franciscan beatniks of the '50s, and the East Berlin ravers of the '90s. Now it’s Tbilisi’s turn, the coolest emerging city you most likely never heard of. Sandwiched between Azerbaijan, Russia, Armenia, and the Black Sea, the Georgian capital was exonerated from Soviet rule in 1992, and has been gaining steam as a city on-the-verge for its cultural happenings and budding underground scene.” Gillian Sagansky writes, saying “Tbilisi is in the midst of a transition with the help of artists and creatives, who flock to and from city for inspiration.”
Photographer Julien Boudet captured the city spirit in his photos, attending Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi for several years. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tbilisi is now on till November 6.
