This is how Godfrey Deeny describes one of his shows: “Georgia’s best staged show was very much by Datuna Sulikashvili, who presented his gothic screen goddess show in a great Constructivist style theater, where models appeared out of the floors on hydraulic platforms and staged precariously at a 45 degree angle as an Oscar winning style star emoted in a diaphanous white dress in a surreal shower made of pages from a novel. Sulikashvili’s strict black pants suits with jade finishes and layered chiffon dresses in burnt orange were also the weekend’s best-cut ideas”. His famous customers include politicians, actresses and singers like Lady Gaga, Sharon Stone and others. It is worth mentioning that the First Lady of Georgia chose Datuna to design her inaugural outfit as well.
