WAMP Design Fair: ‘Show Yourself’, Millenáris, 25 February
At 25 February WAMP design fair starts its 2018 season at Millenáris with a bunch of programs that will help you to refresh your style and wardrobe before spring knocks on your door.

Beyond the already well-known designers you will find many new labels among the exhibitors, a new gastro section and cool programs. Let’s see what will await for you this Sunday at the most popular design fair in Hungary.

Professional style-, make-up and hair service, the latest trends from Márk Lakatos

When it comes to Hungarian fashion the stylist, Márk Lakatos is without doubt one of the most household names. Márk will hold a presentation at 4pm on the most significant trends in 2018, and he will also reveal which items, colours and shapes will dominate the catwalk and the streets this season.

You will have the chance to get professional style advise led by Natália Gyulai, the designer of Nati 100%Pure Idea and Theodora Zsurki the stylist of the internationally acclaimed Hungarian brand Konsanszky supported by the stylist students of the fashion school Mod’Art Hungary.

Registered participants of the program will learn which pieces, shapes and colours match their figure and style the most. Our stylists will advise complete sets from the pieces of WAMP designers within the open showroom during the fair, and all items can be purchased straight away from the creators themselves.

After choosing the right pieces you can opt for our makeup and hair services led by the professional makeup artists of NYX Professional Makeup Hungary and the hairdressers of L’oréal Hungary. Your final look can be then photographed in front of a photo wall.

This year again the student companies of Alternatív Közgazdasági Gimnázium (Alternative Economic Secondary School) will exhibit at the fair. Five brands will present and sell their products designed and produced by the students themselves.

This season the companies have focused more on design and fashion and you will find practical, multifunctional bags, garments, and accessories among their products.

When it comes to refreshing your style this time visitors will also have the chance to don not only new clothes but complete new roles and characters as well. The underground theatre and performance group Átváltozó Egyesület (Transformation Society) will present a bunch of cool costumes of their previous plays created by artists, which you can try on and take a photo in them to see which character suits you the most.

New designer labels at WAMP

At the very first fair of 2018 WAMP will present more new labels and fresh collections. The internationally acclaimed fashion designer Dóra Konsanszky will exhibit at WAMP for the first time, her brand will showcase a selection of her recent and previous collections. Moreover you will find premium leather bags at AGNESKOVACS, exclusive jewellery made by Fanni Király, and the brand new spring collection by ESZKA .

The designer of the month in February is bag designer, Dóra Juhász

Supercool unisex backpacks, shoulder- and crossbody bags for casual wear, elegant clutches for events, leather bags for men, large travel bags and a wide variety of attractive tiny accessories are all part of the “bag universe” of Dóra Juhász. As opposed to many other designers Dóra does not follow the patterns and trends of fast fashion, and she does not create new collections for each season.

Her pieces remain in her collections over years and are constantly refined based on her customer’s feedback until they get their final form. You will find some of her pieces at the open showroom of the fair, and more items will be available at Dóra’s exhibition space throughout the day.

New gastro section – vegan, meatlover, sweet

It is worth arriving with an empty stomach, as there will be a wide variety of food providers serving delicious meals during the fair. Lakatos Műhely, the bistro of Márk Lakatos at the famous Hold street foodmarket will prepare sausages as well as vegetarian sandwiches. Represented by the Hungarian Streetfood Society more streetfood providers will assure that you have a wide selection of meals, from vegan food and paninis to delicious desserts.

A lounge area will be created at the fair with the industrial yet delicate and comfortable pallet furniture made by kalaPP Művek. The brand’s employees will be on the spot to assist you with any questions regarding their pieces.
