Clash Project #9 at FASHIONCLASH Festival 2017


CLASH PROJECT Fashion By Non-Fashion Designers

Since the beginning of FASHIONCLASH Festival in 2009, Clash Project has been one of the highlights of FASHIONCLASH Festival. The Clash project each year invites 10 young artists and designers to translate their work into a wearable piece for the catwalk. To the 10 participants from different art and design disciplines (all non-fashion designers), Clash project is an invitation to come out of the comfort zone, to play and to experiment. The project marks the core concept of FASHIONCLASH – ‘connecting talent, disciplines, visions and cultures through fashion’. The outcome is always refreshing, unexpected, captivating and trendsetting.
