Hungarian Fashion Designers In Berlin
As part of their contribution to the Berlin Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week the Hungarian embassy will present the latest collections from 10 Hungarian designers in collaboration with Collegium Hungaricum Berlin (.CHB)July 01st, 2015
The Hungarian embassy will present the latest collections from 10 Hungarian designers as the Hungarian contribution to the Berlin Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The collection will be housed in a showroom which will be open for public viewing between July 8th and 9th at the Hungarian embassy. The showroom is open from 10.00-17.00 and entry is free of charge. Visitors will be able to see the collections of 10 Hungarian designers including Aarion Clothing, Alma Abonyi, Anna Amelie, Daniel Benus, KITIN, Kata Szegedi, Provo-CUT, November and Zako. In addition there will be unique fashion pieces on display at the Collegium Hungaricum Berlin (.CHB) as part of the third issue of Tsokolom Design Salon. Entry to this collection is free and visitors have the opportunity of purchasing items. The highlight of the event is the Fashion Show which will be held at the ME Collectors Room and will start the fashion label Piroshka, a Hungarian urban fashion label that draws its inspiration from traditional folklore patters and styles. This event is by invitation only. The fashion show will be followed by an aftershow party in the Restaurant Budapest Calling, located in the Collegium Hungaricum Berlin. Guests will enjoy music from the DJ Lower Order Ethics and typical Hungarian cuisine.
The events, organised by the Hungarian embassy, give Hungarian designers the opportunity to showcase the best of Hungarian style; a fusion between urban and tradition style. In Piroshka’s collection there is not only a fusion between urban style and tradition but also between Berlin and Budapest. Indeed Piroshka’s founder, Anna Hegedűs has spent time living in both cities and combines urban fashion with influences from Hungarian folk costume. In fact, she has worked with experts in Hungarian handcraft to develop and modernize traditional dyeing processes to use in her collection.
This year’s contribution to the Berlin Fashion Week includes many different styles of Hungarian fashion with designers such as Daniel Benus, who draws his inspiration from sports clothes in films of the 1960s and 1970s, and KITIN, whose collection explores the concept of “more is less”.
