However I always buy a couple of trend-led pieces, classy, timeless items are the real jolly jokers in my wardrobe. Where can you find unique clothes and accessories? I just discovered a new showroom in the heart of Budapest, come and check it out with me!
Home of Fashion opened its gate in February. As soon as I entered the place, I realized I was in fashion paradise: elegant, charming rooms, welcoming atmosphere, cool but affordable designer items. Right now 16 local designers sell their goods here, although it's not just a showroom, but an important platform for the Hungarian fashion industry as well.
The showroom is an exciting initiation by two young talented girls, Ildi and Fany, who dared to dream big and created their own studio. It’s a unique shopping experience, where you can find customized fashion items and besides that you can meet the designers as well. They have fix opening hour weekdays from 1pm till 7 pm, on Saturday from 10 am till 2 pm. Style is about expressing yourself, choose the items, that represent the real you! Home of Fashion is the perfect place for that. If you can't find your size, they will make it ready for you and even send it by post: clothes, handbags, jewelry, shoes in all styles and colors.
Last week the showroom launched Scherfel Nora’s new shoe collection for spring-summer, I dropped by for an hour. Mandragora Design is a nature inspired shoemaking company, their items are customized and extremely comfortable, while using carefully selected quality leather from Italy.
Mainly classy flats are designed, you will also find cool, edgy pieces and vibrant shades. This collection was inspired by the pastel colors of the beach, the result is perfect harmony and sophisticated look. The iconic model is the so called "Audrey" shoe with bird pattern, which represents wing and freedom. The shoe is hand-made and all the process takes place in Hungary, which is a rare example. We are quite used to the fact that almost everything is „Made in China”. I appreciate this kind of art, because making shoes is a real art to me. Shapes will stand the rest of time, a descent pair of flats is a must have in everyone's wardrobe!
Let’s stick to Coco Chanel’s thought: „Fahion fades, only style is timeless”.
