During the 3-day hybrid (ON- & OFFLINE program) festival, a new generation of designers and performing artists from all over the world are given the opportunity to show their work to a broad (inter)national audience. The program with exhibitions, fashion and theatre performances, talks, workshops and film screenings showcases projects that explore, contextualize and celebrate contemporary fashion culture.


The program consists of a selection from the submitted proposals and from the projects initiated by FASHIONCLASH itself that are being developed in co-production with other organizations.

Our organisation

FASHIONCLASH is an interdisciplinary showcase and development fashion platform and a worldwide network of emerging fashion makers based in Maastricht, The Netherlands.


We initiate, produce and present existing and new work of a new generation of fashion makers who research, reflect, contextualize and celebrate contemporary fashion(culture) from the intrinsic question:


How can fashion contribute to a better, healthier and more inclusive society?


Since 2009 FASHIONCLASH has realized numerous successful projects and offered the stage to over 1000 talents in The Netherlands, but also in Brazil, South-Africa, China, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium, Germany, Portugal, Serbia and Italy.


FASHIONCLASH is managed by artistic and managing directors Branko Popovic, Laurens Hamacher and Nawie Kuiper, assisted by a dedicated team and supported by a community of friends, volunteers, partners and family.
