Designer Spotlight: Lako Bukia

Redefining the way the world sees femininity and sexuality; Lako Bukia is known to create flattering, yet beautiful garments- her label aims to show off the shape of all women using luxury materials and high-end, complicated cuts.

Last year, the Georgian designer wowed onlookers at VFS’s Freemason’s Hall by introducing prints to her line in an Asian inspired SS12 collection, leading to her receiving high praise from press and buyers alike.

Her label is strongly influenced by the Cubist movement and this is continuously illustrated through the minimalistic lines and geometric shapes which dominate her work. It is this signature bold style, which when combined with the extraordinary, complicated construction techniques that she uses for her clothing; that makes her a serious contender within the fashion sphere.

Since graduating from London College of Fashion, Bukia has been presenting her collections at both London and Paris catwalks for the past three seasons and will be closing the final day of womenswear at Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s Freemason’s Hall at 7.30pm on Monday 20th February.
