The 8th edition of the festival is curated around the theme of HERITAGE, consisting of a theme related and general programme.

HERITAGE Edition FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016 looks to the future along the theme of ‘Heritage’.
‘Like no other fashion knows how to renew itself again and again by creating a new atmosphere each season, using the past as an infinite source of inspiration and by selling and presenting the past as the new future. Designers look back to the past but also dare to speculate about the future. From this perspective designers are shaping the future of the shape of things to come. What is the role of our cultural heritage in a constantly changing world? How are new generation designers dealing with their cultural heritage (ancestry and traditions) in a globalized world where everything seems to be reachable and in which fashion is dominated by Fast Fashion chains and mass-production? Where do you come from, where do you go?’
Campaign Launch In relation to the theme of Heritage a campaign is created with an editorial and fashion film in collaboration with Lonneke van der Palen, Studio Noto, M.A.C. Cosmetics, KEVIN.MURPHY and WEDOVOODOO.TV. In this editorial work of emerging designers is included such as Merel Bos, Jivika Biervliet, Noir Near Future and Minou Lejeune.

About FASHIONCLASH Festival
FASHIONCLASH Festival is an initiative of the Maastricht based FASHIONCLASH Foundation and its artistic and managing directors Branko Popovic, Laurens Hamacher and Nawie Kuiper. The ‘clash’ in FASHIONCLASH represents the encounter between talent, cultures, artistic disciplines, the audience and fashion. FASHIONCLASH believes that the art of fashion can stimulate critical debate about controversial issues in our society. 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?”. With themes such as “Age / Art of Aging” (FCF 2014), “Gender” (FCF 2015) and “Heritage” (FCF 2016) we create narratives that rise above the supercial defnition of the word “Fashion”.
FASHIONCLASH provides a platform by developing and organizing projects and events such as the annual festival ‘FASHIONCLASH Festival’, but have since done several remarkable projects and collaborations in Belgium, South Africa, Poland, China, Portugal, Mauritius, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Serbia, Brazil, Slovenia, Malta and so on.
