FASHIONCLASH Festival 2014 Program

What if we could preserve a certain age, how old would you be? The theme for the 6th edition of FASHIONCLASH festival is 'AGE' and the art of ageing in the broadest sense.The art of fashion can provide a number of means to break down boundaries that are related to the stereotypes concerning age. Ageing is not boring, it is a process that can and should be celebrated. The FASHIONCLASH Festival theme 'AGE' is expressed within the exhibition, various projects and through the campaign images.

FASHIONCLASH Festival is the international and interdisciplinary fashion festival that aims to showcase new generation designers and artists. The spectacular program of the 6th edition with Fashion Shows, Exhibitions, designer Market, Theatre and Dance Performances, Clash Project and FASHIONCLASH Side Program, brings together more than 100 designers and artists from 30 countries.

Distingiushed Dreams & (OLD)Fashion(ed) 

This year, two special projects are developed in cooperation with the Dutch Dance Festival. Within Distinguished Dreams, ten successful choreographers and fashion designers create mini performances in pairs based on their mutual fascinations. (OLD)Fashion(ed) is a collaboration with the Dutch Dance Festival and Museum aan het Vrijthof. In this project, young fashion designers are creating collections in collaboration with experienced artisans. The collections, worn by models of 65 years and older and presented with dance performances by renowned choreographers, will be on display during FASHIONCLASH Festival, the Dutch Dance Festival (October 2014) and at Museum aan het Vrijthof (fall 2014).

Age and the art of ageing in the broadest sense of the word is the theme for this 6th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival. The exhibition is composed of age-themed curated work. We are intrigued to navigate within the theme of age and show how multi-layered concept age is. Furthermore, we are keen to display the crucial role of art and design in the process of transcending boundaries related to age.

The short films will be presented at the exhibition space as well the work of VERWEVEN designers such Anbasja Blanken, Aniek Zinken and Wenda Harmsen.
