International Fashion Showcase London

organised by the British Council and British Fashion Council in parallel
with London Fashion Week
Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic jointly presented
13–23 February
180 The Strand, London WC2R

Three Central European countries – Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic – jointly present their talented emerging fashion designers at this year's International Fashion Showcase in London. The three countries see the opportunity to cooperate in the field of fashion and make a bigger impact together.

These countries aim to express their interest in fashion industry developments

and that the group is interested in cooperation and the creative industry in general.

CU Fashion (Cental European) presents emerging talents and ideas from the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. The exhibition expresses the dedication of Central European designers, professional organisations and other institutions to creating outstanding, unique fashion while inspiring and supporting each other on the way. The overarching exhibition design, created by Gáspar Bonta, mirrors the creative journey of the designers, the audience's exploration of the current landscape of Central European fashion and the geographical and cultural proximity of the four countries. This joint exhibition is all about creativity, freshness and unity. It is about establishing a firm place for Central European designers in the fashion world.

Design Terminal in partnership with the Hungarian Cultural Centre will introduce talented young Hungarian designers from the popular fashion designer competition called 'Gombold újra!' (Rethink/Re-button!), which was launched by Design Terminal, a state institution for the Hungarian creative industries to promote fashion designers who dare to claim that Magyar is still á la mode.

The shortlist of emerging Hungarian designers include Dóri Tomcsányi, KELE Clothing, The FOUR (Anett Gálvölgyi, Anna Zsófi Kormos, and Márton Miovác), ZAKO.

Dori Tomcsanyi:
a uniqueness that comes from personal perception and interpretation of exceptional people and places. The brands uniqueness comes alongside a consistency in using high-quality material.

KELE clothing:earthy, yet playful and colourful; a balance between novelty and tradition, using nature in urban wear. It offers an entertaining simplicity, leaving out the useless elements.

The FOUR:founded by four young designers in 2010, winners of Chevrolet International Competition in 2013. Their eco-conscious design is classic yet innovative; elegant yet easy to wear.

ZAKO (Mihaly Domokos and Eva Hidvegi): menswear that transforms graphic design and is inspired by the fine arts. Their trademark is to leave handmade traces and a personal touch while experimenting with constantly changing urban prints.
