About Fashionclash

Fashionclash Festival is an initiative of the Maastricht-based foundation, Fashionclash, an innovative, interdisciplinary development platform and international network that focuses on a new generation of designers and performing artists. Fashionclash goes beyond the presentation of the latest trends on the catwalk and connections are made between talent, cultures, artistic disciplines, education, the public and fashion. This makes fashion accessible to a wide audience. By using the festival as a platform, Fashionclash wants to show that the art of fashion can contribute to the debate on the role it plays in our society and within art & culture.
