Georgian dance ensemble performs at New York Couture Fashion Week
18 February, 2017
Couture Fashion Week New York (CFW NYC), a multi-day event was held from 10th February to the 12th February 2017 at New York, USA.
Among the world-class entertainers scheduled to perform during the 25th season of the prestigious event, was the Georgian dance ensemble Pesvebi. They performed during the Andres Aquino “Belle of the Ball” fashion show on February 11 at the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan in New York City.

“Pesvebi is a dynamic dance ensemble, based in Brooklyn,
NY, dedicated to the showcasing and preservation of traditional Georgian dance, culture and tradition. Pesvebi was founded by Shorena Barbakadze and Vano Goderdzishvili who emigrated from the Republic of Georgia to New York in 1998. After their son was born, they soon realized that children who were born in the USA of other Georgian immigrants in the area had a limited understanding of their heritage and lacked a community base.

They went on to establish the Georgian Cultural Center in the USA, including the creation of the Pesvebi dance ensemble. Pesvebi quickly became popular — driven by hard work, creativity, dedication and community support. Today Pesvebi has a large membership of talented dancers, and a busy performance schedule including tours in the USA, Georgia and Europe. It enjoys the support of prominent dance professionals including Gaga Natsvlishvili, Gogita Tatulishvili, Gia Melkadze, and Aleko Nadareishvili. The Georgian Cultural Center in the USA has also grown, and now includes classes in Georgian language and literature, folk singing and instruments, ballet, piano, drama, art and voice, as well as tutoring in math and English,” the Couture Fashion Week says.

Pesvebi ensemble was not the only Georgian participant of the event. Textile designer Sopo Barnovi has presented her collection of textile and jewelry at the New York Couture Fashion Week.

Founded by Andres Aquino in 2005 and rated as a top New York fashion event CFW NYC is the longest professional fashion week event running under the same banner in New York.
