HFDA "Fashion Flash" presents: Crafts and careers in Fashion
Date: Thursday, 25th of April
Time: 18:00-19:30 
Address: HFDA Building (18 Istenhegyi út, 1126, Budapest)

HFDA Academy Fashion Flash roundtable discussion was held for the second time, focusing on the topics and opportunities of “crafts and careers in fashion”. During the event, fashion enthusiasts were able to gain insight into various areas of the fashion industry. This included design, production, manufacturing and tailoring. Participants were also able to learn about job roles in fashion journalism, modelling, photography and the work of stylists. Our aim is for the general public to find out more about the exciting options and accessible routes that can lead to a profession in the fashion and clothing industry.

The main issues discussed:

- What kind of opportunities are there within the fashion industry?

- What does a fashion journalist, fashion critic, marketing manager, stylist or photographer do?

- How can we make seamstress and tailoring courses attractive again? How does the current situation of sewing salons and factories in Hungary stand?
- Why is it important to increase the prestige of the craft industry?
