The Budapest Central European Fashion Week, which presents the autumn/winter 2020-21 collections and is organized by the Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency (MDDÜ), started on September 10.
The event began with a Young Talents show, showcasing fresh graduates in fashion, and then continued with a trunk show by Sigismund Dora Menswear and NUBU. The young designers featured will receive a six-month training this fall as part of the Young Talent Program, during which they will acquire the knowledge necessary to build a brand and enter the marketplace. The program forms a bridge between the theoretical arena of education and the practical arena of the market, said Zsófia Bata-Jakab, the CEO of Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency.
The pop-up store was set up at 19 Deák Ferenc utca in Budapest for people to snatch up the first products of Hungarian fashion designers.
Visitors can choose from clothes and accessories by Elysian, Virag Kerenyi, Maison Marquise, Nini, Nubu, Romani Design, Sentiments Couture, Kata Szeged, Tomcsanyi, ViktoriaVarga and Zsigmond Dora Menswear. Shoppers can also choose bags and accessories from brands including Babushka Jewelry, Tipton Eyeworks, TAU Budapest, Vengru and Wessely Jewel.
Those interested can visit the pop-up store in compliance with the health measures currently in force. Wearing face masks is obligatory, and only a limited number of shoppers can be in the store at the same time.
