About Us

The Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency was established as a subsidiary of the Hungarian Tourism Agency in 2018 with the aim to provide structured and efficient professional assistance to all players of the industry. As there is vast economic and touristic potential in the fashion and design industry worldwide, the Hungarian government intends to develop these areas. The aim is to boost the recognition of the clothing and textile industries and the different branches of light industry connected to fashion and design so that their reputation and success reflect their traditions and Hungary can play a leading role in the region. In order to achieve this, it was necessary to establish a state-owned non-profit organisation that can collectively represent the actors of the industry. Throughout its work, the Hungarian Fashion & Design Agency collaborates with Hungarian and international professional organisations, educational institutions, members of the public and private sectors in order to mutually implement the most important pillars of the strategy.
