CLASH PROJECTFashion By Non-Fashion Designers
Since the beginning of FASHIONCLASH Festival in 2009, CLASH Project invites 10 artists and designers per year to translate their work into wearable catwalk pieces. Participants from different art and design disciplines are challenged to transfer their practice, both materially and conceptually to a different medium. CLASH is the perfect opportunity to step out of your artistic comfort zone - to play and to experiment with other forms of art. The participants are professionals who represent various artistic disciplines, such as fine arts, product design, jewellery, performance and photography. All disciplines except fashion are possible. The CLASH project has become an iconic project, forming one of the highlights of the FASHIONCLASH Festival, and its outcome is always refreshing, captivating and trendsetting.
The CLASH Project will be represented on the catwalk in the Show Program during 'Fashion My Religion!', the 10th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival, 15-17 June 2018 in Maastricht. The CLASH show will take place on Saturday the 16th of June. The fitting will take place on Friday the 15th of June.
