This time, Hungarian and regional designers showcased their new season collections not at the usual catwalk shows, but at presentations.
From 2-6 February, it was all about fashion again in Budapest thanks to the Budapest Central European Fashion Week. The main event of the renewed BCEFW, the designer presentations, took place between 4-5 February in four iconic buildings of Budapest: the National Dance Theatre, the Hungarian National Museum, the Museum of Ethnography and the ELTE University Library and Archives, where nearly a thousand people came to see the autumn-winter 2023/24 collections made by Hungarian brands, as well as two Slovak and two Polish designers.
As part of the conceptual change, the MDDÜ has set up the Advisory Board in January 2023, whose primary goal is to improve the performance and attractiveness of the fashion sector in Central and Eastern Europe, to develop a more efficient support system focusing on national and regional designers and young talent, and to discuss current issues affecting the fashion industry, taking into account various sustainability and technological aspects. The panel also included local experts such as Violetta Fedorova, online editor-in-chief of Ukrainian Vogue magazine, Aleksandra Szol, e-commerce, marketing and creative director of MODIVO and Péter Baldaszti, founder and CEO of Vanguards Group (Nanushka, SUNNEI, Aeron).
