The aim 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 will be a workshop by Barcelona-based designer Ana Vasiljevic, who will give a workshop on “Gaudí’s influence on contemporary art and fashion”. 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.

SynArFash workshop and presentation with Hello Wood Studio
In the afternoon after Ana’s workshop, architects of award-winning studio Hello Wood showcase their outputs in their own showroom. 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.
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.
Eco-Fashion Performance is linked to the motto: “Feeling good in my clothing and the space around me“.
We would like to organize this programme in a very special way of performance with dancers in an architecturally interesting location with reference to the interaction of the arts. The pieces to be presented should be inspired by the architecture, color, and structure of a building or part of a building. The designers have the opportunity to put on display their artworks too. The venue is the Kiscelli Museum and its two beautiful halls.
11:00 a.m – 6.00 p.m – Visiting the Global Sustainable Fashion Week’s featured designers’ artworks on display in the Sculpture Hall, personal meetings with designers
3:00 p.m. – Eco-Fashion Performance with dancers in the Churh Hall
4:00 p.m. – Guided tour of the exhibition of Design Without Borders in two languages (HU and EN)
In addition to the offline presentation, designers have the opportunity to present their collections in a video, which we show on our YouTube #GSFW channel during the 7th#GSFW
