From the ethereal summer looks by Àero and Celini, to a new take on disco-fashion by Kata Szegedi and Virág Kerényi, Budapest's Fashion Week has more in store than you think...

When you think of 'Fashion Week', you wouldn't automatically think of Budapest. But, prepare to change those pre-conceived notions, because the talent that was presented this year's Budapest Fashion Week 2019 went above and beyond all expectations.

From 4 to 10 November 2019, there were incredible shows that took place at Bálna Budapest (Bálna meaning 'whale'), a stunning venue holding views of the Danube. A Contemporary Art Gallery was also on show during the day - an innovative and artsy location that was perfectly fitting for the luxury garments on display. The International shows, however, took place at the Tesla, an old, historic building in the heart of Budapest. Where Bálna Budapest gave off a more modern, contemporary feel, the Tesla shows brought back the traditionalism to the stunning fashion shows of BCEFW. 

The trend forecasts from BCEFW were a mix of soft, muted creams and off-whites, contrasted with bold patterns and bright metallics.

Àeron, Artista, Celini, Elysian, Maison Marquise, Kata Szegedi, Nanushka, Sentiments, Nubu, and Roussin,Virág Kerényi were among thebrands that stood out to the BAZAAR editorial team.

Àeron, Celini, Elysian and Nanushka showcased designs that made us lust for a dream-like summer, giving us all the beach-look inspo we could ever need in flowing whites and dreamy creams. The collections could be best described as light and soft - Elysian’s dresses and bodysuits gave an ethereal, other-wordly feel with the way in which the fabrics draped effortlessly off the models' bodies.

Meanwhile, Àeron’s and Nanushka's collections gave a more boho-chic vibe, styled with oversized bags and lofty fringe details. These are definitely trends that we'll be keeping our eyes on going into the New Year.

Yet there were brands that were bold and fashion forward, too - notably, Maison Marquies, Nubu, Sentiments, and Rowssin. The essence of self-expression took centre stage at these avant-garde shows, with strong patterns and bold, in-your-face colours. Maison Marquies even took it a step further by mixing bold prints with bright coloured tights. Nubu, meanwhile, gave us the most stunning minimalist statement pieces.

Finally, taking us back to the dazzling days of disco were Kata Szegedi, and Virág Kerényi. Kata Szegedi’s S/S20 collection was boldly energetic; an extensive use of metallic fabrics made the models look like as though they were transported to the days of Studio 54 in New York, or Le Palace in Paris. Virág Kerényi showcased a vibrant collection that was bright, eccentric, and wonderfully eye-catching, transforming the catlwalk into the perfect place to party
