About us

Creativity - Consciousness - Cooperation

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 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:

MOTEXHA EXHIBITION IN DUBAI

HUNGARIAN DAYS IN POLAND

NDLH was one of the main supporters of the Budapest Fashion Week in autumn 2014 and in spring 2015, where many NDLH members (designers, folk artist, jewellers) and foreign guest designers had the opportunity to show their collection and artworks with great success.

The NDLH is searching the ways, how to deal with the sustainability in the fashion and design. For this purpose an ECO Team of the National Fashion League Hungary was created, which integrates designers, artists and professionals working with eco friendly approach to fashion and design.

The work of National Fashion League Hungary is more than diverse. Its artists are variegated and multifarious. What connect them are creativity, passion for Fashion and the mutual respect. Furthermore, all of them share the sense of REthink&CONscious – socalled RECONs Fashion& Design. As we can see it in the video, they share each other their newest pieces and plan joint work at workshops and gatherings in different locations. These fascinating moments are spent in refreshing attitude. The Eco-Team of the League unionizes designers and through this creates environmentally friendly clothes, handbags and accessories. These master pieces indicate that we can “go green” in a fashionable manner. To support RECONs Fashion& Design, and strengthen the community spirit the League decided to join to the program of Sustainable Development Week and the platform and events of Open Source Circular Economy (OSCE). Numerous talented designers of the League took part of Fashion Week Budapest as well.
