Few years ago me and my friends decided to create a platform so that we can present our work, and it kinda grew out and we are presenting you the program of the third edition.

FASHIONCLASH Maastricht is a unique platform in particular for 'young’ and talented designers / artists to present their work to a diverse (inter) national audience. For visitors this is a unique opportunity to discover new talent, make contacts, and to be inspired by the art of fashion.

This year it's all going to take place in a new location, the former Decorfabriek of Mosa that is located on the Meerssenerweg, just behind the Central Station.


More than 100 talented designers/artists from 11 countries will be showing their work!!

FASHIONCLASH creates CLASH with a diverse program, a creative and cultural encounter of different designers, disciplines and cultures around fashion.

For full list of the participants:


There are several shows with upcoming 'young' fashion designers and this year I will show my new collection as well, but I hope I will make it. Also my friend & partner in crime Nawie Kuiper will show her new collection.

Some designers that showed last year will participate again, like Jacob Kok (NL), Ti + Hann (BE), Lisa Colpaert (BE) and Mascha van Wely (NL). But designers like Femke Agema and Barike will take part for the third time and we are very proud about that.
