This Euregional fashion platform developed in the wake of an investigation by Modemuseum Hasselt and VIA2018 for fashion related talents that have/had a band with the Euregio Meuse-Rhine. This showed that the region has a lot of fashion talent but that there is little communication and exchange across the borders of these 3 countries. This creates a big loss of opportunities, both for the creative industry as for the image of the region. Fashion Across Borders wants to help the Fahion industry by strengthening their networks within the Euregio Meuse-Rhine:
* bring together Actors who work on a creative, economic or educational level within the fashion industry
* Create actions around fashion within the Euregio Meuse-Rhine
* Organise cultural activities around fashion and stimulate economic growth by doing so
* Enlarge the visibility of fashion from the Euregio Meuse-Rhine
One of the FAB projects was the FAB Pop-up store Hasselt in 2011, FAB Pop-up store Maastricht in 2012, and FAB Pop-Up Store Aachen in 2013.
