Pikkpack Shoes at FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016

Anna Gyurkovics Photography
Meet Sara Gulyas, a creative Hungarian shoe designer who lives in Budapest. She graduated as a leather-designer from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in 2013. In the same year she introduced her brand Pikkpack, which is a Hungarian play on words meaning “it’s a piece of cake”. Pikkpack is a flat-packed footwear that the wearers assemble themselves.

You can see Sara Gulyas’ work at the Heritage Exhibition. Friday July 1 open at 18:30 and Saturday July 2 open at 16:00 (free entrance).

When did you realise you wanted to be a designer? How long have you been designing? 
I went to a secondary school of fine and applied Arts when I was 15. I was admitted to the ‘leather-design’ department, this is when my story with and love for leather started and this is when I started designing leather accessories. At the moment, I work with shoes but it’s possible that I will get back to designing bags in the future. I have never been particularly interested in clothes and I would not call myself a fashion designer. I prefer just the term ‘designer’.

We’re happy to introduce you to Amsterdam based Chinese designer Ting Gong. She graduated cum laude from BA at Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2015 and gained experience during her internship at Melitta Baumeister in New York.

Ting Gong will present her new collection at FASHIONCLASH Festival on Saturday July 2. You can get your tickets here.

Describe yourself in three words.
A listener, a rebel and a stick-to-it-ive.

How would you define fashion?
Fashion is a field that involves a lot of various collaborations with other creative fields in order to create a notion of futurism, that illustrates something new and potential.

Who are your artistic influences or inspirations and why?
Hussein Chalayan and Chuang Tsu.

Finding your own voice is difficult, where and how do you find your personal creativity (before you start designing; during the design process)?
Believe in a simple idea, and create an universe out of it through a lot of practice.

Clash Project # 8 - FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016

Charlotte Van de Velde, Clash Project 2015
Since the beginning of FASHIONCLASH Festival in 2009, Clash Project each year invites 10 young artists and designers to translate their work into a wearable piece for the catwalk. Participants from different art and design disciplines (all non-fashion designers) are challenged to transfer their practice, both materially and conceptually, to a fashion outfit. It is an invitation to come out of the comfort zone, to play and experiment.
For the 2016 edition the participants are asked to take the theme of Heritage in consideration, whether  personal or the heritage of their practice.
Over the years we Clash Project has been developing into an iconic project in cooperation with Matylda Krzykowski, who was the curator of the project until 2015 edition.

Curious what the 8th edition of the project will bring? The result will be presented on Saturday July 2nd SHOW 5 at the catwalk of FASHIONCLASH Festival.
