FMSA 2019 Program

After a successful edition of the Fashion Makes Sense Award in 2018, FASHIONCLASH is very proud to present the 3rd Fashion Makes Sense Award. Sustainability is becoming an even more prominent subject on the global agenda and so FMSA has become an even more important project for FASHIONCLASH, but also for young designers from all over the world. The goal of FMSA is on the one hand talent development and support of young fashion designers and on the other hand to contribute to awareness about sustainable fashion among the general public.

The 10 finalists will present two outfits; one at Cube Design Museum and one during FASHIONCLASH Festival 2019 at the SAM Decorfabriek.

The contestants are in the running for the Jury prize of €2.500,- and the Audience prize of €1000,-! The winner of the Jury prize will use these funds to create a sustainable collection, which she/he will present during FASHIONCLASH Festival 2020. The winning designers will be announced during FASHIONCLASH Festival 2019
