10 AM-12 PM

SynArFash workshop and presentation by Ana Vasiljevic

The aim of the program is to bring the work of designers and architects closer to the public so that on the one hand fashion designers present their work inspired by architecture and also architects present their activity.

A highlight of this programme will be a workshop by Barcelona-based designer Ana Vasiljevic, who will give a workshop on “Beyond the natural hights“ Gaudi under the fashion spotlight.

Ana Vasiljevic is not only a fashion designer but also a sustainable fashion educator who is inspired by buildings in her own work, in particular Gaudi’s sustainable architecture.

Her approach in his educational and designing work can demonstrate the synergy of fashion, art & architecture as a sustainable fashion concept.

1 PM-2 PM

Presentation of HELLO WOOD

After the workshop, you can join a very inspiring presentation of HELLO WOOD, the award-winning architecture studio. Their buildings and other works and installations are made primarily from wood and other natural materials, reflecting not only their design consciousness but also their commitment to environmental responsibility.

We highly recommend you to visit their showroom in the MaxCity too!

10 AM-5 PM – SynArFash International Conference

La Prima Fashion Hotel Budapest

This year the 7th#GSFW will join with its main programmes the Budapest Design Week. The Budapest Design Week festival – which will take place from 7-16 October 2022 – has an inspiring theme “Spaces of Encounters – Architecture and Design”. Our planned programme for the 7th#GSFW also aims to explore common concepts and intersections between architecture and fashion, offering a new perspective and interdisciplinary approach for both professional and non-professional audiences. We are looking for links with different artistic sectors so that such collaborations can offer the designers new inspiration and broader, even completely new perspectives too.

The main concept of our 7th#GSFW is SynArFash – synergy between architecture/arts and fashion. The 7th GSFW is a platform where we can invite researchers, designers, architects, constructors, academic professionals, and also students who are dealing with Architecture, Fashion, Arts, and Design.

The SynArFash international conference welcomes speakers who will demonstrate the importance and novelty of this topic through their own practice. Many well-known fashion designers originally studied architecture or draw inspiration from architecture. And many architects are open to the co-arts and look for common ground. Based on our preliminary consultations with such experts, we agreed on the relevance of products and objects that are made in a sustainable, value-preserving, environmentally friendly, or even recycling way. And this approach applies not only to fashion, but also to the objects in the spaces around us, and even to buildings.

FUGA Center for Architecture:

We announce with pleasure a new venue for our fashion show at the 7th#GSFW on 14th October. As some of our designers have already asked to present their collection not only in a fashion performance but in a real fashion show, we can provide them a very inspiring place in downtown Budapest, Fuga – Budapesti Építészeti Központ

The FUGA Budapest Centre of Architecture was opened in 2009. FUGA’s primary message: architecture is an integral part of the culture. By showing artists’ works from various fields they want to strengthen the connection between architecture and related arts

It is an outstanding downtown venue for different exhibitions and various performances. In the hall, there is a bookshop with an excellent collection.

This will be the inspiring venue of our SynArFash fashion show (synergy between architecture/arts and fashion) on the 14th of October. With the host of FUGA we aim to make the audience for the arts and culture feel at home at the Budapest Centre of Architecture enjoying the fashion show, where the featured Hungarian and foreign designers present their wonderful clothes.
