The Czech Centre London, Balassi Institute, Hungarian Cultural Centre London and the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in the UK proudly present Voyage through Central Europe: a joint showcase of 14 emerging designer talents from the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia who will present their newest collections of garments, jewellery and accessories as part of the 2014 International Fashion Showcase.

The project was jointly curated by the Czech Fashion Council, Design Terminal Hungary and the Slovak Fashion Council and aims to introduce the best in current young fashion design. The selected work borders between visual arts and fashion design and creatively blends traditional materials with new technologies, while focusing on strong personal statements.
