Fashion Makes Sense Award 2018

FASHIONCLASH presents the second edition of the Fashion Makes Sense Award. 10 promising young sustainable designers are selected and are in the running to win the jury award and the public award. You can see the designs up close at the exhibition at the Bijenkorf in Maastricht until October 7th. If you can't make it you can also vote online: here

After the first edition of the Fashion Makes Sense Award in 2017 (watch 2017 aftermovie) it was clear that sustainability is a vivid topic amongst young designers and that they gladly take the responsibility for sustainable fashion design. Applications from all over the world flooded our inbox again. That is why FASHIONCLASH decided to develop Fashion Makes Sense Award further as a returning annual project. FMSA is intended on the one hand to stimulate promising fashion talent to reflect on sustainability and to offer support in the development of a responsible collection and on the other hand to make a wide audience aware of issues related to sustainability.

Out of all the applications FASHIONCLASH has chosen 10 designers that are in the running for a prize. The FMSA consists out of two awards: the jury prize worth €2.500,- and the public prize worth €500,-!
Professional jury panel consists of Iris Ruisch (M-ODE.net), Milou van Rossum (fashion editor at NRC), Borre Akkersdijk (BYBORRE) and Olgun Aydin (Manager Supply Chain Sustainability, Puma).
The public award is based on online and offline voting. The winning designer(s) will be announced during the IAF Festive Fashion Dinner on October 9th2018 and via sociaal media from FASHIONCLASH.

 34th IAF World Fashion Convention in Maastricht
This year, the Fashion Makes Sense Award Ceremony will take place during the 34th IAF World Fashion Convention in Maastricht. Besides the presentation of the finalists’ outfits, the guests will be enjoying an interactive performance by theater performer Nina Willems and a musical interlude by Cousin. During this night the jury will review all the participating outfits and finally choose a winner. The audience decides who will win the public prize. People can also vote for their favorite outfit online via the FASHIONCLASH website and during the exhibition.
From 1 to 7 October the ten outfits can be admired from close by at the Bijenkorf in Maastricht.
