FASHIONCLASH or the new vision of fashion, social design and visual arts


SAVE THE DATE! The 14th edition of the international and interdisciplinary FASHIONCLASH Festival will take place from 25 – 27 November 2022 in Maastricht.

During this three-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 international audience. The program with exhibitions, performances, talks, workshops and fashion film screenings, showcases projects that explore, contextualize and celebrate contemporary fashion culture.

FASHIONCLASH Festival is all about discovering, stimulating and co-shaping current advances in fashion and opening up these advances to a wide audience. The festival focus is on developing and presenting a cross-border program that demonstrates that fashion is more than just clothing and that it can be a new world in which all kinds of different disciplines and voices merge into a new narrative. Participants of the festival belong to a generation of designers and artists who explore and question the boundaries of their discipline. With their works they move between the transdisciplinary domains of fashion, social design and visual arts.


The program is a curated selection from the submitted proposals through Open Call and from the projects initiated by FASHIONCLASH itself that are being developed in co-production with other organizations.
