An innovative and interdisciplinary showcase for fashion and a worldwide network of emerging designers and artists.
“FASHIONCLASH believes passionately in the crucial contribution the creative industries make to society, culture and economy. By researching and questioning ‘fashion’ we learn to understand the psychology of human behaviour and its role in undermining stereotypes. The central question being asked, “How can we develop the fashion industry to improve well-being and equality?”.
FASHIONCLASH has grown from a single catwalk show into a renowned full-service fashion showcase specialist. With ten years’ experience in fashion project management, creative concept development and curating, an innovative vision and an international network, FASHIONCLASH has gained a powerful position in the fashion world.
WEAVING THE THREADS TOGETHER
FASHIONCLASH has developed a worldwide network of designers, artists, partners and experts to enable the realisation of visually dynamic fashion concepts and tailor-made events. Our portfolio includes more than 350 projects including fashion shows, exhibitions, performances, interdisciplinary projects, fashion talks and events.
The “clash” in FASHIONCLASH represents the encounter between talent, cultures, artistic disciplines, the audience and fashion. The interdisciplinary database of FASHIONCLASH enables powerful cross-over concepts and live performances with various renowned cultural institutes, theatre-makers, dance companies, music performers, filmmakers, photographers and knowledge centres.

FCF is an inspiring, international and interdisciplinary fashion festival that takes place in Maastricht (the Netherlands), that shows the art of fashion in the broadest sense of the word. The festival aims to provide a fertile platform where a new generation of designers and artists from various disciplines get the opportunity to present their work to a broad and diverse audience, (inter)national press and industry leaders.
With themes, such as ‘Age/Art of Aging’ (FCF 2014), ‘Gender’ (FCF 2015), ‘Heritage’ (FCF 2016) and now ‘Fashion Makes Sense’ (FCF 2017) FASHIONCLASH creates narratives that rise above the superficial definition of the word ‘Fashion’.
Since the first edition in 2009 more than 1,000 talents from 50 different countries and 6 continents have joined FASHIONCLASH Festival and were given the opportunity to show their talent and work. Some of their careers really took off from there!
