Organized for the 10th time, Budapest Central European Fashion Week was again building the country’s image and helping fashion businesses to market their products. It has proven season after season why international distributors, journalists, fashion industry professionals, and decision-makers from around the world flock to Budapest, Hungarian news site Origo reported.
The Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency was founded in 2018, and since then the Budapest Central European Fashion Week, considered the central fashion event of the Central European region, has been held twice a year.
The event always attracts great interest, not only from the general public, but also from designers, influencers, as well as the national and international media. At the 10th fashion week, the 2023 spring and summer collections were presented.

In addition, domestic fashion and design events contribute to the growth of Hungary’s tourism attractiveness and the national economy, and provide visibility for Hungarian brands.
Last but not least, the events can also lead to an increase in international orders.

“Fashion is a means of preserving and presenting cultural identity, promoting the encounter with local culture, products, crafts, and contemporary art,” said Zsófia Jakab, CEO of the Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency, about the event.
As reported by Origo, the 10th Budapest Fashion Week, from August 29 to September 4, was held in close collaboration with the Ukrainian Fashion Week, and concluded with a two day fashion show by seven Ukrainian brands, alongside 15 Hungarian and two Polish designers at the Museum of Fine Arts.
