The Nightmare Disorder - digital FASHIONCLASH Festival

The Nightmare Disorder fashion house presented its debut project within the framework of The Clash House, a new format of FASHIONCLASH Festival that focusses on experimenting with presentation forms. Performance is created in collaboration with choreographer Giovanni Brand. 

The Nightmare Disorder is a fashion house with a desire to bring back the cinematic storytelling aspect of fashion. By using character building as a big part of the design process, they strive for creepy perfection. Starting graduation year at ArtEZ Fashion Design in Arnhem, Benji Nijenhuis and Nemo Cheminée decided not to collaborate. They wanted to develop themselves as individuals first before they started working together. Now it's time to clash both worlds in to something they call ‘The Nightmare Disorder’.

With the main focus on craftsmanship and the reinvention of a classic fashion house, Benji and Nemo use design, photography and styling as a medium to search for the right balance between beauty and anxiety. They want to scare the audience in the best way possible, using Nemo's love for children's films and dreams and Benji's fascination for danger and 50's couture. They have created a selection of characters they want to present to you at their first official campaign release during FASHIONCLASH Festival
