In 2021 the project organised its first fashion show THE FOUNDATION which showcased the works of five Lithuanian designers
as well as jewellers.
This year KOMODA is organising their second fashion show THE RESIDENCY which is the highlight event of the contemporary city festival
“Audra” (en. The Storm).

Fourteen designers both local and from other
countries will be able to showcase their designs to the wide audience of Kaunas.
The show itself is being planned to take place on Friday, the 1st of July, at the square and garden of The Vytautas the Great War museum.

The main themes of the show are identity and sustainability. The event will be
happening in two parts with seven designers in each – five local and two international
designers respectively.

  • Round trip flights;
  • Accommodation for two nights;
  • Meals for the duration of your stay;
