Young talented Hungarian fashion designers

NEW BLOG POST from contributor FASHION FORWARD, New York-based not-for-profit think tank established to challenge the conventional discourse around the fashion system.

Over the last half-decade, there has been a proliferation of independent, local, sustainable brands around the world. Fashion Forward has been working to create guides that feature these labels, rich in culture but often lacking capital to compete in the global marketplace. Meet 15 sustainable fashion designers of Hungary.
