13th edition of the international and interdisciplinary FASHIONCLASH Festival in Maastricht will take place from 26 - 28 November 2021 in Maastricht.

Experience FASHIONCLASH Festival On- and Offline!

During the festival you can discover the work of a new generation of designers and artists from all over the world. The program with fashion presentations, exhibitions, theater and dance performances, short fashion films and conversations, shows projects that explore, contextualize and celebrate contemporary (fashion) culture.
Participants of the festival belong to a generation of designers and artists who explore and question the boundaries of their discipline. With their works they move between the transdisciplinary domains of fashion, social design and visual arts.

The program consists of a selection from the submitted proposals and from the projects initiated by FASHIONCLASH itself that are being developed in co-production with other organizations.


The festival is open to everyone via ticket sales and there are also many free activities. For tickets and information about the program, please visit


The Clash House

The Clash House is a development program and showcase for innovative designers, focused on crossovers between fashion and other art disciplines. Participants are challenged to experiment with presentation forms in which storytelling and interaction are central. The presentations consist of installations, performances, film and discussion with the participants.

Participants of The Clash House are: Bobbine Berden Design, Carlijn Veurink, TEUN, The Nightmare Disorder en TheNEWtribe.

New Fashion Narratives

Designers who are central to New Fashion Narratives see fashion as a mission. They belong to a generation of designers who explore the boundaries of their discipline and question the system and the fashion industry. Their works move between the transdisciplinary domains of fashion, social design, visual arts and in their work, they look at the relationship with the ultimate user/consumer. In this way they introduce contemporary themes such as sustainability, gender, consumption and thus new narratives for fashion.
NFN is a collaboration with the Maastricht Theater Academy and filmmaker Daniel van Hauten/ Wedovoodoo.Tv.

Participants are: BEA BRÜCKER, Boris Kollar, Dominika Kasova, EllenBloo, Katharina Achterkamp, 
LOST WITH THE NEW, Mariana Malta, Rena Jansen x Michelle Vossen, Studio Adaptive Skins,
Vogel Vete and Ploen Mevis.
Fashion Film & Video
In this digital age, fashion film (fashion short film) is an effective way to capture a layered story and reach a wide audience
through online platforms and media. In addition to short fashion films and many fashion film festivals, there has also been an
emergence of digital fashion and virtual presentations in recent years. A number of films are premieres!
Participants are amongst others: Flora Miranda, Custom Territory, DAWID TOMASZEWSKI, Sarah Frede,
and many more.

visions and styles of an outspoken and progressive generation. During the Open Mic Night, ten different designers and (performing)artists
present their work in the form of a fashion presentation or performance.
