Starting with a basis in athletic apparel, designer Georgy Baratashvili has created a line of gladiator fashion, complete with lots of draped fabrics, straps and scraps.

The designs by Georgy Baratashvili are a cool combination of fashion-forward design and athletic clothing, creating gladiator fashions the most fashionable of the sport-loving would be proud to wear.  However, I may discourage athletes from running in those shoes..

Implications - Since the release of the highly influencial film Gladiator, Roman-inspired fashions have exploded on the runways and in the streets. Consumers are looking to recapture this distinctive style with a modern twist, and designers who incorporate elements from these antique styles are catering to this massive demand.
