CHOICE of HUNGARIAN FASHION AND DESIGN AGENCY 2019 
 
I aspire to work with unusual materials, create something valuable from remaining and tailings of fashion industry. I am applying my skills and creativity to establish the sustainable menswear brand, which will amaze people, challenge them to more creative thinking, as well as to make them question the social norms of fashion. I think, that menswear still has untapped potentials and starts gaining more and more attention. Extravagant, gender-fluid menswear items are wider accepted and slowly becoming a part of everyday wardrobe. I like, that Fashion nowadays is becoming more inclusive and genderless.
 
The collection, I present, is inspired by the waste that the fashion industry creates: shreds, second-hand clothes are upcycled and given a new preciosity and refinement. The silhouettes of the outfits are inspired by 17th-century royal garments. By the uncanny combination of precious elements with damaged goods elements and thrown away materials I'm purposefully intending to question what is considered today as valuable.
