Every year, we are inspired and sensitized by International Women's Day, as the country celebrates women as one person.
Recently, there has been an even greater need for women's cooperation and women's friendships. We have a probationary period behind us and who knows what awaits us this year. Our grandmothers, sisters, mothers, female co-workers and female partners were of great help to us.
While browsing the endless Fortepan collection, Zita came across pictures of different gang teams. These pictures told about women's friendship, each other's support and strengthening. One of the oldest photos, from 1900, captured me so much that the image was inscribed with Girl Gang on the T-shirts and bags (source: Fortepan / Leonóra Mészöly, fortepan.hu). By looking at the three character and stylish figures, you can imagine yourself in their story. What was it like to be a woman in Budapest in 1900? The middle woman is a leading figure, defiant and strong in personality, the lady on the right radiates elegance, and the lady on the left is reticent, careful, thoughtful. They are your uncles, our mothers, we can thank them for what we are today.
Along this, Zita reflected on the impact that women's relationships have had and still have on the development of Printa.
“Who are the members of the Printa Girl Gang? The Print has always been strengthened by female energies (respect for my dear male colleagues). From the very beginning, we shaped the whole thing with Claudia Martins. We met Claudia during childbirth, which is something that can be said to move a lot of female energies. But in the years that followed, plenty of women strengthened our girl gang, we fought for one goal, more sustainable fashion and design. We worked, we created, and then we parted ways, learning a lot from each other. Wonderful clothes, products, graphics have been born over the years, and this is still the case.
I would like to highlight a couple of gang members who have helped Printa with their special vision and knowledge in the last difficult time, so they have earned their place in the Printa girl gang.
We found each other very well with Judit Sipos in the spring of 2019, we immediately had the spark and we complemented each other perfectly. He has all the knowledge and skills I completely lack, and he was sucked in by the eco-friendly and conscious collection design and life. Working together has turned into friendship, you can't wish for a better girl gang member.
Each meeting with Krisztina Maróy , the editor-in-chief of Glamor, is very inspiring, I learned a lot from her. In 2020, our collection of Glamor x Printa x Szalai Mimi stole into your hearts, you also loved the light drawings and their message about environmental awareness and women's togetherness.
Eszter Mengyán I can say that she is the oldest member of the Printa girl gang, since we know each other from before Printa. He has always supported the brand through his journalistic and editorial activities, even before any collaboration. In 2016, she decided to direct her work to the promotion of sustainable fashion, and since then she has done a lot to promote sustainable fashion and formed opinions with many of our female peers. I couldn't imagine working with a more credible person.
Brigi Munkácsi is not only a zero waste fighter and blogger, but also a beautiful model, so in 2020 she was a model in Printa clothes at 2 collections, I really like our joint work. I already consider it Printa's face :) ”
We sincerely thank all our female partners for their support, both with their work and with their shopping. It would be impossible without you.
