Similarly to other creative fields, Budapest serves as a muse for these fashion trendsetters working amid the city’s creative energy to enhance their craft. Naturally the chillier weather brings heavier materials, drapes and layers, warm coats and darker colors, so from daywear to evening wear we take a look at what is new and different about the Fall-Winter collections of some of Hungary’s top fashion labels. What’s certain is that as the sunny days wane and autumnal leaves start to decorate trees, these 2014/15 collections promise to warm and inspire. Enjoy!
