The Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency (HFDA) organised the Budapest Central European Fashion Week (BCEFW) before the International Fashion Weeks to display the works of Hungarian brands and designers to the international scene early on.
The Budapest Central European Fashion Week (BCEFW) is one of the largest fashion events in Central Europe that “ensures the introduction of Hungarian and Central European designers to the fashion industry, the press, and the general public”.
The last event was organised in October 2021 and showcased the previous collection, while the current BCEFW is held between 31st January and 6th February.
Roadster writes that the HFDA has prepared an exclusive experience where over 30 designers from Hungary and its neighbouring region can introduce their collection to the market, retailers and the media, ahead of the larger international event.
The week will be dotted with public events and exhibitions all over Budapest.

On the last three days of the BCEFW, the designers will hold catwalk shows in two different renowned locations to display their pieces on models.
This time, the venue for the catwalk shows on the 4th of February will be the Royal Guard & Riding Hall at Buda Castle, which has been recently renovated.

On Saturday and Sunday (4th and 5th of February), the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest will host the shows.
The CEO of HFDA said to Roadster that “[we] have made a strategic decision when we decided to organise the Budapest Central European Fashion Week nearly a month earlier in order to connect the Hungarian fashion industry to the international professional event and to strengthen the international recognition of BCEFW”.
The organisers expect a similarly diverse audience like the one in autumn with around 4,000 guests from the US, Europe and the Middle East.

Another new introduction to the event is a virtual store in the Metaverse, where you can purchase items from the site of the Budapest Select Concept Store, Roadster reported.
Turizmus.com highlighted that similarly to last year, the ticket sales are offered by HFDA to the Hungarian Interchurch Aid, an internationally organised Hungarian charity organisation. The ticket sales were worth HUF 2 million (EUR 5,500) in October 2021.
