Young@Squat at FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2013
Young@Squat was in Maastricht, they gave a great show during FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2013. But who and what is Young@Squat?
"We are a creative, observative, innovative, cooperative, commited, enthusiastic group of independent authors, specialized in fashion design, graphics design, art and creative direction. Can you tell us something about the Squat collective? We are a very diverse group of designers, each with a very specific point of view in fashion and design in general. However, as a group, we combine all of our different styles and perspectives to form distinct, but very cohesive collections.

What is the history of Squat and who founded the initiative?
Squat was founded by two prominent Slovenian designers, Natasa Persuh and Zoran Garevski. In 2010, they invited a group of young, unknown designers to form the younger branch of the brand, now called Young@Squat.
Which designers participated at FASHIONCLASH Maastricht 2013? Young@Squat participated in its full line up of designers – Peter Movrin, Sanija Reja, Petja Zorec, Anđela Lukanovič, Špela Hvale, Ivan Rocco, Dajana Ljubičič, Nena Florjančič, Katja Magister, Ana Jelinič and Nina Tomažin. Our collection, Between Sense and Sanity, is a bold, daring and cool fusion of both craft and modern techniques showing expertise in fashion textile design combined with a fearless future-vision.
How did you come up with the title of the collection “Between Sense and Sanity”?
The project (collection) is a challenge to us – we set a broad theme, which opens new questions and problems; what is between sense and sanity? How different is it from nonsense and insanity?
Watch out for them!!
