The establishment of the National Fashion League Hungary Association (NFLH, Hungarian abbreviation: NDL) was timed at the date of Hungary’s joining to the EU in 2004. The majority of the founder members were well-known Hungarian producers, designers, professionals of the clothing and fashion industry. Nowdays majority of the members are designers and creative people dealing with fashion and art. NDLH opened the doors for foreign members, a very talented designe&artist from India and a textile designer from Bangladesh (working in Qatar) joined to the Hungarian/EU membership.
The NFLH was one of the founders of the European Fashion Council in 2007, The president of the NFLH acted as vice president of the European Fashion Council till June 2014, when she resigned the vice presidency to separate herselves from the activities of the president, who has not properly kept the required democratic and ethical way of dealing with the issues and with the membership’s interest of EFC, therefore some very reliable fashion organisations in EU had to leave EFC.
NFLH has the aim to strengthen the cooperation with foreign organisations, Chambers of Fashion, Fashion Weeks, cultural institutes in order to exchange designers, artists, professionals in their fashion and art related programs, at different fashion weeks, fashion shows, exhibitions and workshop.
NFLH was member of the Euro-Mediterranean Dialogue on textile and clothing in the working group on competitiveness. NFLH is associated member of the United Fashion EU project, and keeps the contact with EURATEX (European Apparel and Textile Organisation) too.
The following presentations, exhibitions and fashion shows were coordinated and organised by NDLH, inviting own members and other Hungarian brands, designers and producers from the textile and fashion industry to participate in:
