14th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival

14th edition of the international and interdisciplinary FASHIONCLASH Festival will take place from 25 - 27 November 2022 in Maastricht (The Netherlands).

During this three-day hybrid (on- & offline program) festival, a new generation of designers and performing artists from all over the world are given the opportunity to show their work to a broad (inter)national audience. The program with exhibitions, performances, talks and fashion film screenings and awards, showcases projects that explore, contextualize and celebrate contemporary fashion culture.
FASHIONCLASH Festival is all about discovering, stimulating and co-shaping current developments in fashion and opening up these developments to a broad audience. The festival consists of a multidisciplinary and polyphonic program based on a selection from the proposals submitted via the open call and the projects initiated by FASHIONCLASH itself, which are developed in co-production with other organizations such as Glamcult, Via Zuid, Kunstbende and Marres.

FASHIONCLASH Festival is accessible to everyone via ticket sales and/or for free. 

Campaign and the story behind the project

Driven by the spirit of the FASHIONCLASH community – from volunteers to coaches to performers – this campaign is centered around the people who have played an important part in the existence and development of FASHIONCLASH Festival, going back to the early start in 2009. Needless to say, these people represent a bigger group of people. Each individual is captured in a surreal locker room, where they prepare themselves for the next game – the 14th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival!
