Paulay Ede Utca
“For a few years now in Budapest, I’ve observed the increasing number of concept stores with handmade clothes, accessories and decor,” says Skiba. “One of the best streets to shop for these things is Paulay Ede Utca. Here, you can find many multi-brand stores with collections from Hungarian designers. My favourite is The Garden Studio,” she adds. Opened by fashion designer Dóri Tomcsányi, The Garden Studio stocks colourful clothing by independent Hungarian brands, so if you’re after a statement piece, this shop is worth a visit. Also situated on Paulay Ede Utca is Projekt Showroom, a space full of stalls hawking an array of items by local designers. This hipster paradise provides an unforgettable shopping experience, with vendors specialising in the likes of arty postcards and prints, scented candles, statement clothing and jewellery.
