Clash project 2011

Clash project & Theatrical Encounters
Two specialties of FASHIONCLASH are the interdisciplinary projects such as the Clash project and Theatrical Encounters. 
Under the slogan Clash project several non-fashion designers and artists will create alternative clothing in connection with their usual discipline. 
This year designer Maaike Fransen, stylist Natalia Kacper Mleczak, product designer Kaspar Hamacher and artist Olek and eight other designers and artists will translate their vision of fashion into an outfit for the catwalk.
