Let's meet Sándor Lakatos Aterlier!

Sandor Lakatos, Hungarian fashion designer was born and raised in the small town of Tatabánya, Hungary. He used to work on a sewing line from age 15, and his grandmother, the manager of the factory has taught him all the tricks of the trade from a very early age. To Sandor it was clear from the very beginning that he would like to wear clothes that he designed.

“It’s not like I had to think and choose a career, or like becoming a designer was the most obvious choice in my environment. On the contrary – I was called overly idealistic, sometimes insane for something that was so natural to me. My vision seemed like the most outrageous thing for everybody around.”




Sandor started his design career in 2008, founding his brand Sandor Lakatos Menswear, designing and producing yearly menswear collections. His unquestionable style and expertise in made to measure sartorial suits has earned great following, throughout the years he dressed number of Hungarian celebrities for television, editorials and for the red carpet. Sandor Lakatos Menswear is receiving great press since day one, with editorial features in international fashion magazines and online features.

His breakthrough moment came in 2012 when his work was featured in Vogue Italia’s new talents section. This acknowledgement put him on the map of emerging fashion designers, drawing great international interest to Sandor Lakatos’s work. His work was presented in Paris at a Showroom Autrement PR event in 2014 and at Tranoi trade show. He had a PR agent and a physical stockist in London (Studio Collections), in Dubai (The cartel showroom) and two in Budapest (Berlin Store and Treasure), and a growing number of online retailers. Currently he has a showroom in Budapest. From 2014 he extended his made to measure atelier to female customers as well, drawing a steadily growing clientele of his “For Her” line.

Sandor Lakatos Menswear is not just a brand name. All clothes of his portfolio are designed, modelled, tailored and handmade by Sandor Lakatos himself. The patterned textile materials are also designed and printed by him.
