future traditions - national identity and world of patterns


Ever since she was a child, Dóri has been driven by a certain predestination. Fine art, design, characteristic textiles and patterns: these were her first memories, her first and most important ingrained impressions. This attraction has led Dóri all the way to the MOME fashion design department. She launched her own brand, TOMCSANYI, a year before she got her master’s degree. The interest that blogs and magazines were showing in her work made it clear to her that the worlds that can be discovered in design should be popularised on a larger scale through a brand.
In 2014, Dóri’s autumn/winter collection earned her the Hungarian Product Design Award, and the panel gave three more of her works exhibition rights.
One of the pillars and motifs of the TOMCSANYI contemporary women’s fashion brand is a focus on bold patterns. In the first 10 years, the brand’s collections were inspired mainly by the visual world of the socialist era and a longing to return to that object and architectural culture. However, the brand set out on a new path with its 2023 autumn/winter collection, with the focus shifting from post-socialist Eastern-Europe to a Hungarian identity through national and folk motifs and symbolic elements, intertwined with Dóri’s doctoral research. As a student at the Doctoral School, through her own brand, Dóri is finding out how to create a sample collection that describes the Hungarian identity in terms of national heritage and traditional Hungarian symbolism.
