The WAMP summer season begins on April 27. The organisers are looking forward to welcoming visitors who are interested in the latest Hungarian design collections and would like to spend a day in a busy, creative atmosphere to the renewed Erzsébet Square promenade.
Nearly a hundred designers will participate in the first open-air WAMP event this year and quite a few brands will present their brand new spring collection here to the public. The organisers are preparing a number of new things, for example, the new Favourite Designer of the Month award, who is chosen by the public on the Internet.
Those who would like to update their wardrobe with a few new items will love the latest models by the musume label, decorated with geometric prints or stitching, or the latest UrbanLegend collection, which consists of outfits named after explorers, intended for everyday and bike riding wear.
Those who want a unique bag will snatch the new canvas and leather KlassDSign models and the cute items designed by Róth Anikó, which can be worn as a shoulder or belt bag and which are decorated with her own graphic designs.
Many people love the eye-catching plexiglass jewellery by the Blue Paprika fashion label, who have added rings to their collection. Kata Szűcs, the designer behind the TAKU label, will also showcase her latest jewellery designs. Each wooden or bone item in her collection is like a beautifully made mini-sculpture.
In April, Szilvia Bozsik and her brand, EOSinE is Designer of the Month. Eosin is the name of a shiny glaze, so typical of the Pécs Zsolnay factory. The magical character of this material, which changes colour subject to the different light conditions, inspired EOSinE, which puts this centuries-old technique into a new, contemporary context. The bags and jewellery are made from leather, whose surface is lacquered using a special printing technique, and which looks similar to the objects made in the famous ceramic factory.
The colour of EOSinE items changes because the patent leather refracts light, the colour of the material itself does not change. EOSinE have expanded their product range this spring and, for the first time this Sunday, their beautiful leather sandals will be available at WAMP.
The Favourite Designer of the Month award will be handed over for the first time. WAMP visitors were able to vote on Facebook for their favourite brand. In April, the fércművek brand won. Actually, some new words had to be invented to be able to describe their activities. At first, the brand offered toys for children and later, they added wildly popular jewellery items to their range.
The label will present their brand new spring collection, which comprises necklaces, bracelets, brooches, rings and earrings, to the public for the first time at WAMP. The theme of the collection is a garden full of secrets, with everything it entails.
The next WAMP will be held on May 11 on the Erzsébet Square promenade.
