Georgian fashion designer and creative director of fashion house Balenciaga, Demna Gvasalia, has starred in the most recent TV series of The Simpsons.

The red carpet performance of the Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2022 collection was ‘the build-up’ to an actual premier of The Simpsons special episode at the Paris Fashion Week on October 2.

Because I’ve always loved The Simpsons, for its whole tongue-in-cheek nature and the slightly romantic-naive side to it”, Demna Gvasalia said.

He approached the producers of te famouse American TV series without much hope that they would ever want to collaborate, but in fact they did.

Born in Sokhumi, the provincial capital of the Russian-occupied Georgian region of Abkhazia, Gvasalia moved abroad emerging with the 'underground' collective Vetements he co-founded with his brother Guram.
