Be Next Festival comes to a close
Lara Quint takes home 'Best Collection' prize

After four days of workshops, talks, fashion showrooms and presentations on the beautiful Georgian coastline, the Be Next International Art and Fashion Festival comes to a close. 

An international jury featuring amongst others, designer Josephus Thimister and fashion photographer Jean-Daniel Lorieux,  had the chance to meet all 23 participating designers and observe their work in a showroom presentation. But it was the final fashion show at the beautiful Batumi Opera that singled out the winner.

Finally, it was Ukrainien Lara Quint who took home the prize of 'Best Collection'. Her collection convinced with a strong overall direction and concept - watch her work here!
