Fashionclash Maastricht is an international and interdisciplinary fashion event mainly focusing on ‘young’ designers and artists, active within a broad range of disciplines. The event gives them the opportunity to show their work. The work shown, are related through a clear link with fashion: fashion collections, textile, photography, video, jewellery, accessories etc. The event includes work by over a hundred talents from all over the world!
Fashion Shows: There are fashion shows where one can see various fashion collections of emerging labels. From avant-garde and haute couture to ready-to-wear women's and men's fashion, but the catwalk also makes room for theatre performances and presentations.

Theatrical Encounters and Clash Project: As the name already suggests, Fashionclash stands for a clash with fashion. From this concept we have created interdisciplinary projects as the Clash Project which involves non-designers who express their vision of fashion in a fashion creation. This year’s edition include photographer Madame Peripetie and designer Maria Jeglinska. Theater makers like Nina Willems and Sophie Mantel are clashing with fashion designers in the project Theatrical Encounters.
