FASHIONCLASH Festival is a three-day international and interdisciplinary festival for designers and (performing) artists who investigate, contextualize and celebrate contemporary fashion culture. FCF is all about discovering and supporting talent, driving and co-shaping current developments in the fashion (world), opening up these developments to a wide audience and initiating active public participation. 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. FASHIONCLASH Festival is accessible to everyone via ticket sales and/or for free.

Open Call for entries
There are currently two open calls for participation in the 15th edition of the festival.

The CLASH House (development trajectory and performance Program)

The CLASH House, as part of the Performance Program of FASHIONCLASH Festival, is a showcase for a game-changing new generation of designers, who focus on crossovers with fashion and other art disciplines, in particular with performing arts. Participants are challenged to experiment with presentation forms in which storytelling, immersive experiences and inclusivity are central. With The CLASH House, FASHIONCLASH gives each selected participant a coaching trajectory provided by artists from the field of performing arts. The aim is to develop performances that can contribute to the innovation of the discipline, stimulate artistic development of the designers and facilitate the dialogue on what fashion is and can be.

Fashion Film Program
The fashion film (short fashion film) is an established format in which designers and brands are presenting their ethics and aesthetics. In this digital era, it is one of the more effective and sustainable ways to capture a fashion narrative and to reach a wide audience via online platforms and media. Challenging the norms of traditional presentations, advertising techniques, and moving fashion shoots, both independent designers and large fashion houses have embraced film as an art form. Besides the fashion film genre, there has been a rise of digital fashion in recent years. Designers have been digitally presenting their work in the form of a video or film, out of necessity or because they choose audiovisual tools to present their work.
