Good news for Daalarna! The new BUDAPEST collection has been featured on one of the best international wedding websites, The Lane. Photographer Matt Godkin took breathtaking pictures of the most unique dresses from the BUDAPEST collection to make a little noise for our upcoming Daalarna trunk shows worldwide. The photos were taken in Australia, on the breathtaking Whitsunday Islands.
The Lane X Daalarna
During a year that has called many of us to inwardly explore the bounds of our identity, to re-evaluate our beliefs, values and knowledge, for Anita Benes, designer and founder of Daalarna Couture, it has been a glimmering opportunity to peel back the layers of her Budapestian heritage and culture that is so innately woven into the fabric of Daalarna. Through this journey of magical self-discovery comes ‘Budapest‘, the new 2021 collection from Daalarna. A collection spilling with sentiment, each piece poetically anchored in Daalarna’s signature romantic, folkish aura, yet uniquely suffused with eclectic cultural motifs and Hungarian tradition’ The Lane writes about the new Daalarna BUDAPEST collection.

Anita Benes about the new BUDAPEST collection:
‘I think that Hungarian and Eastern European design techniques and folk motifs are very special and are considered more unusual and surprising in the fashion industry than other countries’ well-known design traditions. I am not just very proud of our beautiful folk art but also think that by showing it to the world Daalarna can offer something unique and different to the brides who choose our dresses.
While designing the new collections, I always focus on creating something brand new instead of just reusing or copying these traditional techniques and motifs.
