Another Hungarian fashion event took place on Saturday that we were pleased to be invited to, and I couldn’t wait sharing my insights with you guys. The Toni&Guy Fashion Week Budapest – just like last year – was held at the breathtaking venue of Palazzo Dorottya, running six shows one after the other, flavored with presentations by Dóra Abodi, Anh Tuan or Júlia Káldy.

During Budapest Fashion Week, I ran into the beautiful model Csilla Kormendi, who gladly filled up my curious mind towards to the models’ world, and she talked about her fascination for her profession with all its downsides and glamour. Enjoy!
Reka ∣ SilkSoFine: I’ve heard of two types of starting up a model career: one either gets discovered randomly at the airport, on the street or in the local shopping mall at the age of 14, or with the intention of becoming a model, one prepares a portfolio and tries her/his luck at different model agencies. How was it with you? To which category do you belong?
Csilla: To be honest, I belong to a bit of both; for the first time I was solicited on the streets in my home town; Gyor, but it sounded a bit of a scam even though at the time I basically knew nothing about the modeling trade and its rules. Not much after an agent from ICON found me while I was messing around in a shopping mall in Budapest – at the time I was 19 and in my first year at University. I had a watchful approach to them, but I slowly realized that I’m in very good hands, and have no reason to worry. As soon as ICON signed me on, the best international agencies waited for me wherever I went.
Reka ∣ SilkSoFine: What’s your background? Have you always been interested in the fashion industry; or rather just – so to say – fell into this world? (more…)
After Copenhagen-, London- and Paris Fashion Weeks, SilkSoFine visited theTONI&GUY Budapest Fashion Week, which is more like a fashion day, but a rather intense and joyful one. The shows were held at Palazzo Dorottya, which turned out to be one of the most beautiful venues ever with its partial glass-roof, designed originally by Mihaly Pollack. / Nach den Kopenhagen, London und Paris Fashion Weeks, besuchte SilkSoFine nun die TONI&GUY Budapest Fashion Week, die eher ein Fashion Day ist, aber ein intensiver und erfreulicher Tag. Die Shows fanden im Palazzo Dorottya statt, das sich mit seinem partiellen Glasdach, ursprünglich von Mihaly Pollack designt, als einer der schönsten Veranstaltungsorte herausstellte.
Je suis belle opened the shows with a breathtakingly chic collection, showcasing pure whites and soft pastels detailed with sparkling silver embellishment. The stiff off-white cape – which was also the showpiece – literally indicated ‘Heaven coming down to the Earth’. (more…)
Without having a soft spot for Budapest – apart from the fact that I’m a proud Hungarian – I have to admit it’s truly one of the most beautiful european capitals. On the occasion of getting really close to the Toni&Guy Budapest Fashion Week, I have a last minute five-stars-hotel suggestion for you guys; as it’s stated on the hotels’s website with a bit of a poetical excess ‘all ways leads you to Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest‘, which is located in the very heart of Budapest near major attractions and shopping streets, and is easy accessible. The one-day-fashion event is the perfect opportunity for some fashion added luxurious treat in the hotel’s richly equipped spa or private art gallery. Spoil yourself with the leisure facilities of Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest after having seen some great Hungarian designs from: Je suis belle, Anda, Anh Tuan, Nanushka and Use Unused.
Ohne ernsthaft eine Schwäche für Budapest zu haben – abgesehen von der Tatsache, dass ich eine stolze Ungarin bin – muss ich zugeben, dass es eine der schönsten Hauptstädte Europas ist. (more…)
