Portfolio: Nanushka

A contemporary House for the modern human

 
 

Born and raised in Budapest, Sandra Sandor graduated from the London College of Fashion in 2005. In 2006 she launched her own label Nanushka, which took a more entrepreneurial approach in 2016 as Peter Baldaszti, Sandra’s longtime partner has joined as a co-owner and CEO.

A signature style of confident ease and subtle femininity was evident even from the first collection. Where East meets West, the brand draws inspiration from the spiritual journey through cultures and time, effortlessly combining function with flair

With clothing designed in Budapest and produced in Europe, the collections showcase the finest craftsmanship and materials. The brand operates a free standing flagship concept store in Budapest. The her collections are now stocked in over 30 countries internationally and represented in the most prominent fashion shows.

In the Press

 

“Nanushka grew its revenue from $1.3 million in 2016 to $9.6 million last year, and is on track to reach $20 million in sales by the end of this year”

“The past few years have been Nanushka’s breakthrough, thanks in part to a few savvy business moves, but it’s social media that really got it in front of a global audience.”

“Mr. Baldaszti orchestrated a change in Nanushka’s identity — everything from its logo to its shoe boxes — and Nanushka’s revenues have nearly tripled in the last two years”
