10 AM-5 PM – SynArFash International Conference
Venue: 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.
