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.

By being involved in significant Fashion Weeks both as press and two helping hands backstage whether it is London, Milan, Copenhagen or Paris for some time past, such event as the Hungarian Marie Claire Fashion Days only filled me with great excitement and curiosity – something very different, yet truly awaited. For the first time in SilkSoFine’s history we got the pleasure to spend our Friday night among the latest; as well as the well-established Hungarian talents, cream of the local media, theatres, sport world and music industry. The line-up featured ten designers presenting their Spring/Summer 2014 collections in the breathtaking VAM Design Center within the confines of an exclusive show slash VIP reception. After the lovely welcoming words of Marie Claire’s Chief Editor, Krisztina László, brands like NUBU, Nóra Sármán, Dóra Konsánszky or Dóra Abodi took over the catwalk. The night’s speciality was as the first look of each designer were worn by well-known Hungarian personalities. / Obwohl ich schon bei einigen nennenswerten Fashion Weeks involviert war, sowohl als Presse als auch als helfende Hand im Backstagebereich, ob nun in London, Mailand, Kopenhagen oder Paris, erwartete ich die ungarischen Marie Claire Fashion Days mit großer Spannung und Neugierde – weil es doch anders ist und ich mich wirklich drauf gefreut hab.

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 belleAndaAnh TuanNanushka 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…)

Sandra Sandor behind the Hungarian contemporary label Nanushka, reflected a deeply mysterious, yet truly modern story on her Autumn/Winter 2013 collection. Her inspiration was drawn from a book, titled ‘Conference of the Birds’, which speaks about fire as a major motif, an elemental source in the Sufi tradition. Sandra applied these motifs and contradicting elements to her collection: Black and white pieces mixed in balanced proportions with a colour palette loyal to Sufi manuscripts. The lush fabrics blended classy shapes recalled proper one-of-a-kind pieces, by merging laid-back sporty edge with folklore elements. We heart it!
