I had to write an essay in school about 'new media' today - I basically fluffed it, but I did bring up a point or two about how easy the internet makes it for us to stumble upon new things. And thus I present to you. Atelier Kikala (please check out their facebook site here - it is more than worth it). 

It pains me to say I can't find anything on the internet (in English) about this label other than the fact that it is located in Georgia, but I think the pieces from this particular collection (they do have a few other lookbooks) speak clearly enough on the quality and creativity of their work. The laser-cut dress above easily slid into my favorites category upon the first few seconds of love at first sight, and my fingers are itching to get some designs done. Another obscure label worth keeping your eye on (that's what new media is for, folks.)
