"Budapest Design Week is held every fall citywide and is open to both the public and the design industry, attracting over 60,000 people annually. This year’s event, the eighth in succession, will take place between September 30th and October 9th."
This year I'll finally manage to get to the fashion shows of Budapest Design Week (it's not a fashion week at all, there are just a few fashion-themed exhibitions and shows and performances, it's mostly about designer objects like lamps, armchairs and stuff...it's like an interior design festival, actually). I could even register to book media seats, yaayy!
The first show will be held on the 29th of September at 10 PM in the Museum of Applied Arts, it'll be a polish jewelry and fashion show as Poland is the guest country of this year's Design Week. I have the seats reserved, I will absolutely be there and tweet about the whole show in a live-stream way (follow My Fashion Lust List on Twitter here).
"The slogan of the 2011 program is 'Couleur Locale', meaning local colors and shades, focusing on the unique features of the visual culture of Hungary." Honestly I don't have the foggiest idea what on Earth this means, but hey, another reason to be present on a lot of programs is to figure it out, right?You can download the program brochure of Budapest Design Week here or visit it's website here, but below I'll list the shows and events I'll be visiting thus you'll be reading about on MFLL.
There will be a total of 12 fashion related shows, exhibits and performances, five of those are fashion shows I'll be attending as they're totally worth a visit. Also, there will also be another 6 open studios - it means designers' studios are open for public for a day or two. (Additional fun fact: one of the open studios will be held on the first floor of the building my boyfriend lives in.) I'll definitely visit at least four of these studios too. So during the 9 (actually more like 10) days of Design Week, I'll attend a number of events and cover them here on MFLL.
All of you people, take a look at the programs and let me know what you would like to read about the most. See the list of the events I'm attending below. Comment! :)
