The CLASH House is a showcase and development program for designers who focus on crossovers between fashion and other art disciplines – especially performing arts. These designers explore alternative ways of making and presenting fashion. The aim of the program is to encourage designers to experiment with presentation formats and thus contribute to the innovation of the field and create a unique experience for the audience. At the Tilburg edition of The CLASH House you can enjoy the performances to-be-to-exist by Esra Copur and 'Super Femboyant' by Ruben Jurriën.
There will also be a surprise performance by Fynnandmathis.
